Fall Color 5K Run and Walk

October 1, 2017, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$10 – $45

Visitor Center area-race through East-side roads

Why will you run? For our rolling terrain course? To enjoy the crisp autumn air surrounded by a canopy of beautiful trees? Or to satisfy your inner champion? Whatever your reason, you’ll make a difference when you race through the trees at our 14th annual Fall Color Run & Walk. Your participation supports the Arboretum’s work to protect and plant trees — because every tree needs a champion, and you look like a champion to us!

Included with your race registration is a post-race party featuring live music, recovery food, photo booth, and a complimentary beer (for those 21+.)

Kids Race:

Designed for youngsters ages 2 to 10 years, the Kids Dash takes place on a loop course in the heart of the festivities. The race will be staged in the following heats:

2-4 years – 50 yards
5-6 years – 1/4 mile
7-10 years – 1/2 mile
All Kids Dash participants will receive an event t-shirt and a finisher’s ribbon.

Registration for the Kids Dash is limited to 400 kids. Register early before it sells out!
