EquiTek 5k Cross Country Race

RUN for FUN in Tryon, NC in June 2023!

Tryon, North Carolina

Foothills Equestrian Nature Center 
        Welcome to the second annual Equitek 5k Cross Country fun run or race! The start clock chimes at 9AM at the Foothills Equestrian Park, near the TROT Barn Facility.   Bring your best horse friend, dog pal or family member out for a good old time!

        The FENCE course offers a few challenging hills, crush & run footing, some hard packed dirt trail and a bit of pavement. The scenery is all that and more if you are needing a bit of an escape from the usual paved 5k running experience. Along with this scenic trail running opportunity, racers have the option to purchase a classy technical sport shirt!
        The Foothills Equestrian and Nature Park has the best running, walking or riding trails for horse and human. Escape the ordinary 5k and come play on the same cross country route as world class eventing and fox hunting horsemen and women!

Event day, June 3rd parking will be plentiful so expect easy access coming and going from the course.
