Spin in the Woods – CANCELLED!

April 9, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

ATTENTION! Due to the expected, heavy rain all day today and forecasted rain for Saturday, a downhill, turning section of the trail becomes hazardous when wet and muddy. For runner safety, we regrettably cancel this year’s Spin in the Woods cross country race. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Race Overview

Come out to Turkey Run Park for a newly designed trail 5k. The course starts off on a 1k out and back on the park road then goes on a 3k out and back loop on one side of the parking lot and then finishing with a 1k out and back on the other side of the parking lot.
