About This Activity

Families and individuals who love a beautiful run or walk are invited to the Eagle Ranch’s first ever Run the Ranch 5K and family fun day.  Participants will enjoy shaded, tree-lined paths and beautiful paved roads with pasture views. Strollers are limited to the Fun Run, as the 5K course will have a small portion of unpaved paths.

Whether you come to run, walk or cheer others on, the day will be fun for all. After the morning’s athletic events, snacks, lunch and activities will be available. Enjoy a picnic at our lakeside pavilion and family time on our playgrounds, athletic fields and courts. This is a special opportunity to see our private 270-acre campus and support the mission to help make life better for children and their families. Please no pets.
