Welcome back to the Run for the Hills Event. We will be hosting the 30K, 8K, 2 Mile, and 1/4 mile kids run. The 30k trail course uses the entire 8k course and adds a trip up to Fitton Green Natural Area for some awesome views. It also incorporates the scenic Mulkey Creek trail, as well as the new Amy's trail and Crestmont Land Trust trails. The course is challenging due to the hills, but the great views and nice trails are worth the effort.
The 8k trail run remains the same challenging course of mostly hills and a few flat stretches in Bald Hill Park, with about 1.4 miles of paved path and 3.6 miles of dirt trails.
Proceeds of this event benefit the Greenbelt Land Trust Trail Fund. This fund helps purchase raw materials and equipment used for trail construction and maintenance by the volunteers who keep our trails safe and passable for users. Over $65,000 has been raised in the last twelve years through this race.
