The Calhoun County Trail Run is an 8k and 20k that takes place on the beautiful Calhoun County Trail including both Bridge Park and Ott Biological Preserve. The rolling hills and beautiful scenery, rock walls and bridges make the run a must add to your list. The trail is gravel surface and non-technical. The run will take place entirely on the trail, with a few street crossings. 

We are doing our part in being good stewards of our community and working towards limiting waste. The Calhoun County Trail Run will be completely cup free.
