Greetings Runners! 

This is a trail race! At least, we hope it is. High water kept us mostly on park roads last year, but we plan on getting back on the trails in 2022!

Runners may find hidden roots, ruts, sharp turns, and other obstacles. The race course follows the river which has proven quite challenging over the years. We donate proceeds back for trail maintenance or park enhancements. They are quite gracious in support and ask how we would like our donations used. They have used our donation towards a railing at a dangerous spot, trail erosion control, recycle bins, water fountain bottle filling station, a new cafe in the visitor's center, and more. We feel quite lucky and blessed that the park allows us to bring 1,200+ people into it with 600 pounding the trails.

The race ends in the meadow where you may gather with family and friends while the local radio station provides music. Stay for a wonderful post-race costume contest!  We have an awards ceremony with many age group awards and also many prize drawings. 

Even if you register for either race activity (Nature Walk or Trail Run) for Sunday October 30, you may also still volunteer for Allerton. Responsibilities for volunteer opportunities will vary based on the opportunity you sign up for. The Race Director, a volunteer captain, or team lead will be available to provide direction or guidance as needed. Other experienced volunteers can also provide insights and advice. Further instructions and possibly training as needed or requested will be provided closer to the day of the event. For any questions, please email the Race Director Brian Moline (
