Celebrate the Center’s 530+ acres of rustic woodland beauty at the Tröegs Rugged Trail Run for Conservation! The Center is thrilled to partner with Tröegs Brewing Company for this exciting event! All proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art. Proceeds will directly benefit the enhancement of wildlife habitat on our 530+ acres, maintaining our 12.5 mile trail system (including the scenic bridge overlooking the Wiconisco Creek) AND to help support funding for our outdoor nature play area, opening Spring of 2018!
Registration is $40 for ages 13 and up (12 and under are Free)
Please note: Event is limited to the first 250 registrants
This race is open to all ages, and prizes will be given to the top male and female runners in each age group.
