Join us for Hobby Trails to You! 5K & 10K Trail Races. The cross country start (a line of anxious runners toeing the start-line) very quickly funnels into a 5K and 10K single track race. This is painstakingly accurate for distance. Don’t go by your GPS watch. In fact, don't ever go by your GPS on a trail! There’s ample parking, food, drink, music, shade, occasional snakes and poison ivy. But don't worry about the snakes, ivy or spider webs unless you're the front-runners!
