Once again this year the Woodcock Nature Center located on 56 Deer Run Road is hosting a kids fun run, "Where the Wild things Run" on Sunday, Oct. 15.  Registration opens at 7:30 a.,. and the kids fun run starts at 8:30 a.m.; the 5K run starts at 9 a.m. Registration cost for the kids fun run is $20 and $35 for the 5K run.

The 5K course is almost entirely run on the trails maintained by the Center for more fun and adventure. It will be approximately 90% trail with a mix of groomed trails, rugged trails and narrow bridges/boardwalks. The challenging terrain will highlight the diversity and beauty of the property. Runners, joggers and walkers of all ages are welcome. This trail is NOT stroller friendly.

The Kids Fun Run course is a fun course appropriate for all ages. Parents are welcome to accompany their children.

Parking for the event is available along Deer Run and Fawn Place. It is somewhat limited and will require up to a 1/3rd mile walk to the start. Please arrive early to ensure you get to the start on time and think about car-pooling.
