This year marks more great "firsts” for the 34th annual Run with Nature – with a new location, and new run and walk courses. The races take place along the Humbug-Willow Creek Trail system. The paved trails are surrounded by acres of open space and wetlands, and travel over a number of bike/pedestrian boardwalks and bridges. You'll be amazed that you're in the heart of the City and yet surrounded by beautiful natural scenery!

The course options include a 5.8K fitness walk, 5.8K and 13K chip-timed runs, and a youth half-mile fun run (contained within Cummings Family Park).  Note: runners on the 13K course will be able to determine their 10K split with mileage markers.

Registered 5.8K and 13k participants receive a commemorative finisher’s medal and T-shirt. Youth fun run participants receive a T-shirt and raffle entry.
