About This Activity

Everyone loves beavers! Now in it’s 4th year, the Beaver Moon Twilight 5K celebrates the 2016 November Full Beaver Moon, with a 5K competitive, chip-timed run and walk on November 12. Come join us for a great evening run in Noblesville, score an awesome event shirt, and receive a custom finisher medal when you cross the finish line!

The New Beaver Moon Twilight 5K name comes from the Native American name for the November moon. Moon names helped kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. The November full moon was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.

This 5K run/walk, starting at 4:30PM, starts by running across Potter’s Bridge, the only remaining covered bridge in Hamilton County, then winds along the White River on the White River Greenway Trail, from Potter’s Bridge south to Field Drive, returning to Potter’s Bridge Park just before dusk.

Not up for the 5K Distance? You can try our 2.5K Youth Race or Adult Fun Run/Walk. Whichever distance you choose, the sunset at 5:31 PM should lend for a beautiful evening event, with the Full Beaver Moon coming out as you finish!
