Join us on Sunday, June 12, 2022 for a family-friendly event at the Troy Farm located at South Blvd. and Beach Road in Troy. This event will benefit the Stage Nature Center.

To accommodate social distancing this year, Runner and Walkers will participate on a scattered-start basis and on separate courses.
5K Runner route starts at Troy Farm, goes to the nature center and back on trails and sidewalks. The 2K Walker route is on trail that winds through meadows and wooded trails. Feel immersed in all that this natural setting has to offer.

*Event organizers reserve the right to move from an in-person to a virtual event should COVID restrictions make it necessary. All participants will automatically be transferred, no refunds will be processed.

$30 Early bird registration for adults | Additional $5 Registration after May 20th (adults only)
$15 for youth (ages 11-15)
Little Sprout Sprint: $15 per participant (ages 10 & Under)
