5K & Kids Fun Run

to benefit Woodcock's educational programs

Sunday, October 3 beginning at 8:30 am

Details and registration coming soon. 

90% trails, 100% fun. Run wild for Woodcock!

Woodcock Nature Center welcomes runners, hikers and walkers of all ages at its annual Where the Wild Things Run 5K and Kids Fun Run. For several decades, this event has highlighted Woodcock’s nearly 5 miles of publicly accessible trails and raised money for the center’s educational programs. All proceeds support the nature center!


The popular 5K is 90% trail with a mix of groomed trails, rugged trails and narrow bridges/boardwalks. The terrain of the 5k highlights the diversity and beauty of the Woodcock property. A shorter 1K Kids Fun Run geared towards ages 6 and up is appropriate for walkers and runners of all ages.

There will be signs posted throughout the course to help guide runners. Volunteers will regularly walk the course to ensure safety and check the signage. Grounds and trails will remain open to the public during the race weekend. Dogs must be leashed. Please park parallel along our driveway. Please note that the trails are not stroller friendly.

Please follow social distancing guidelines when on the trails and grounds.
