About This Activity

Run for the ACORNS
5k Trail Run/Walk and 10k Trail Run
Sunday, October 12, 2014
at the Genesee County Park & Forest
Raymond Rd, East Bethany, NY 14054

Walk or run on single and double track trails through the forest, along a creek and up and down rolling hills in the Genesee County Park & Forest, with an estimated 100 feet of climb in the 10k loop. Trails are very wide and easy to negotiate (minimal rocks and roots). The course starts on asphalt and then leads into the woods for a truly beautiful run through nature. All proceeds benefit ACORNS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) "friends of the park" group that enhances the public’s experience at the Genesee County parks and fosters environmental stewardship and education.
