Quarry Hill Run Wild 5K Trail Run & Hike and Wild Child Dash Quarry Hill Park Sept 21, 6pm
A note on Strollers
The 5K route is not stroller friendly, unless you have an all terrain stroller. Casual hikers are welcome, but please be aware that this is not a 'walk in the park' - the terrain is varied and includes significant inclines.
The 1K kids dash follows a course of mostly wide grassy trails with only gentle inclines.
Join us on the Autumnal Equinox for a race to remember - new date, same wild time!
