  1. CANCELLED: No-Frills Trail 5K - Just $5!

    December 9, 2017, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Guilford Mackintosh Park & Marina

    THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER! The next race is scheduled for January, 6th. Same time and place. The No-Frills Trail 5K is a series of trail runs (or hikes, walks or whatever speed you'd like). We just want people to get out, move and have a good time! Since this is not a fancy 5k, we’ll only be providing a well-marked 5K course and a clock so you can see your time as you finish. Registration and fees will be taken on race day. So... If you want a t-shirt – wear one! If you need snacks – bring some! If you want an award – too bad! The theme for this race is Reindeer Run so be sure to bust out your antlers and red noses!
