Event Start Time

The event will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Times will be staggered so runners begin first. Please arrive with plenty of time so that you are prepared to begin at 9:00 a.m.  Doing so will help avoid any late start issues. Run 2 Read officially ends at 11:30 a.m.

Event and Course Details

Run 2 Read features certified 5 & 10 Trail Run which will be timed by Eastside Race Management.  Run 2 Read takes place at Stony Creek Metropark. Enter off 26 Mile Rd. and be prepared to pay $10 for a daily vehicle pass or $35 for a yearly pass. We will be utilizing the Sheldon Trails (also known as hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country ski trails). Registration is at West Branch Picnic Area Parking Lot C, which is located near the trail head.  Restrooms are close to the registration area.  Maps of Stony Creek, the registration area, and the trail system for the races are online at

The 5K walk and run follow a route with gentle inclines and declines, covering gravel and dirt paths. The 10K route is more difficult and incorporates more changes in elevation and terrain. Whichever route you take, the scenery will lead you to believe you’re on vacation!

The staff at Stony Creek Metropark regularly grooms the trails. However, this is an off-road event, so you want to come prepared with proper footwear that is already broken in. Children in strollers are welcome, though you want to prepare for terrain. Please make sure you bring a stroller equipped for off-road conditions. Also, consider the weather. We’re going rain or shine!

 What to Bring

We will provide water for event participants at aid stations along the routes. We will also have bananas at the end of the route. Please bring a personal supply of water or food if you have specific requirements. Also, consider bringing camping chairs, since seating is limited. Insect repellant and sunscreen may be useful, depending on conditions. You may also want to take advantage of other park amenities, so please plan accordingly.

We look forward to seeing you on June 18, 2016!
