Visit the Elachee Nature Science Center on Sunday, November 1, 2015, from 2-4 PM and enjoy the outdoors at their Trick or Trek Trail Run — a 5K walk/run and a 10K trail race.

Wear your Halloween costume and scare a squirrel or two as you enjoy the forest at your own pace.  You might even win a prize for best costume!

This race is a challenging and serene off-road running experience through the forest with a series of hills and bridged stream crossings.

All proceeds benefit the non-profit Elachee Nature Science Center.
