About This Activity

The Kids Aid 5K/10K Trail Trot Run and Walk is a fun and easy way to support feeding kids in Mesa County!  We heard you last year and even added a 10K for those wanting a bit more. This trail run/hike is moderate in level, is easily accessed from town and offers a great view of the Bookcliffs.   There's no better way to support a local non-profit while enjoying some time with friends and family out in the fresh, October air!
