Rain or Shine!
 
Race starts 8:30 a.m. sharp
Family Walk Begins 10:30 a.m.

Flat Rock Brook will hold its 8th Annual 5K trail run on Sunday, August 4th.  The "Run in the Wild" starts at our Nature Center.  After a short street run, the course enters the shaded trails of our 150-acre preserve.  It's a unique opportunity to run through a suburban forest.

New this year is a 1-mile Family Walk on a trail that passes a cascading brook, wetland and scenic overlook.  We will provide snacks, water and a souvenir animal plush for our young participants.  Following the walk is a birds of prey program at 11:30 a.m. led by one of our staff Naturalists at our Raptor Aviary.  Kids will have the chance to see owls, hawks and a falcon up close and learn about these important birds. 

Race registration: Adults $28 per runner in advance; $30 race day; Youth (ages 12-17)  $23 per runner in advance; $25 race day

Family Walk registration:  $25 includes 2 adults and 2 children (under age 5 free); $10 additional/single adult; $5 additional/single child

NOTE:  Family Walk parking will be available in our Nature Center parking lot from 10:00 a.m. onward.  The area will be closed for the race until that time.
