The Friends of the Valdese Rec invites you to start 2020 with a challenge and tackle the trails of Valdese Lakeside Park in our annual 5 & 10K trail runs. These trails are not highly technical, but there are roots and rocks and occasional ruts that you'll contend with, but you'll also be running in one of the few trail (only?) 5 or 10Ks in Burke County. Note: if there is a lot of rain or snow leading up to the event, they could be muddy.
In the weeks and months leading up to the event, we'll try to have some group training runs at a various paces, to allow you to get a feel for the course and what to expect. Our aim is to make it a challenging but manageable event for you to kick off the new year with and to allow more people to experience our new park and learn about what the future holds in terms of its development.
