#OptOutside Kids Trail Run

A family-oriented activity on the Rachel Carson Trail on Black Friday

North Park Trail Runners and Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy are co-hosting the fourth, annual, family-friendly trail run on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving). Skip the shopping madness and join us outside for some trail fun! We'll meet at the Orchard/Ling Pavilions in Hampton Community Park and then make our way as a group to the Rachel Carson Trail for a fun two-mile hike/sprint. Typically, the kids run in bursts, followed by walking and often stopping for rests. It's all good! We encourage kids to explore their surroundings; get muddy, if possible!  This isn't a race; speed is not rewarded on this day. The ability to suppress whining or complaining will be recognized with a tasty cookie (or two) at the conclusion.

Bring water to drink and dress in layers. If you plan to do some running, you can shed a layer or two when you get hot.

This event is FREE and there's no registration; simply show up!
