RUN WILD 5 mile trail run

22 June 2024, 8:00AM
Hogan’s Fountain, Cherokee Park OR virtual

“Run your own race at your own pace”. Choose a virtual option or in-person at the beautiful and historic Cherokee Park.

In-person: Run or walk at least a 16 minute mile pace. Awards for top three male and female overall. Participants will receive a series medal and t-shirt. You may purchase a car towel as well. Great door prizes after the run (9:30AM) and some homemade snacks. Find and collect hidden laminate animals along the trail for extra door prizes. (Speedy folks, you can run right past them.) Your highlight might be getting to meet one of our licensed education animals! Find out who it will be this year!

Virtual: No matter where you are, you can get out and enjoy nature at your own pace. Email us at within one week of the in-person race day to receive your medal and t-shirt. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a car towel. I wonder if we can get one runner or family from EACH of the 50 states to participate! Maybe even some out-of-country participants. Out of country participants will have an additional $10 fee due to shipping. (Sorry y’all, but we do want to include you because we love you too! )

Each year, our medal and t-shirt will showcase a different wildlife species. Our inaugural animal was to honor the beloved JB. Collect them all!

Just $30 for entry up to June 1 and guaranteed shirt size. After June 1, race fee will be $35. NO guarantee on shirt size. Proceeds will go towards saving wildlife.
