About This Activity

Put some extra spring in your step with this scenic 5K trail on the stunning campus of Linton Hall School and the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia! The 1-Mile Run/Walk is a non-competitive event that is open to all ages.  5K runners and walkers of all ages and levels will enjoy the elements of this natural trail course as they trek beside lofty cedar groves, a lightly flowing creek, over gently sloping hills, through peaceful meadows and spacious grass fields.  The 5K course will also meander past several memorable gardens and historic structures dating back to the early 1900’s.  For extra fun, please join us in the Carrot Patch for family-friendly activities for all ages!  So celebrate spring by wearing your Easter bonnets, bunny ears, whiskers and cottontails, and fully experience the glory of nature’s beauty on this “golden egg” of a trail!
