Dash to support habitat conservation and children’s nature-based education programs!
The beautiful 5K trail run/walk begins in the parking lot behind Aurora Medical Center, which leads to a section of the famed Ice Age Trail. Traverse through forested ridges and swales and cross small bridges through a secluded meadow. The last 3/4 mile runs along Columbus Street. Cross the finish line at the Woodland Dunes Nature Center!
This is a friendly race event at a bit of a slower pace due to the roots, surprise “trail trolls,” and natural terrain. You can sprint for time when you hit Columbus Street!
