Everyone loves beavers! Now in it's 3rd year, the Beaver Moon Twilight 5K celebrates the new Beaver Moon, with a 5K competitive, chip-timed run and walk on November 14. 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.
The sunset at 5:28 PM should lend for a beautiful evening run, though with the new moon phase, it will get dark quickly - incentive to run faster! Make sure you keep an eye out for the beavers in the river while you run, walk or skip your way through the beautiful tree lined pathway. A portion of the proceeds from this race go towards the Friends of Hamilton County Parks Foundation.
