About This Activity

Gerald Ford Elementary in association with The Living Desert is proud to present the first ever Ford Falcons 5k Run for Education. Come join us as we take a rare opportunity to race through The Living Desert and enjoy all the sights and sounds it has to offer. This course is both beautiful and challenging with a combination of pavement and trail running. We will start in The Living Desert parking lot and continue through the park to the beautiful trails that await us on the back side of the Zoo. Then the journey will take you on an adventure around the best model train display the valley has to offer and end the race right back where you started. Registration includes custom bibs, a race t-shirt as well as admission to The Living Desert for all participants. You can Run or Walk, we’re just glad you could join us for this fun event!

Trail running not for you or your little one? Run, Walk or Stroll the 1K Fun Run!
