7th Anniversary Run for the Acorns

Walk or run on single and double track trails through the forest, along a creek and up and down rolling hills in the Genesee County Park & Forest, with an estimated 100 feet of climb in the 10K loop. Trails are very wide and easy to negotiate (minimal rocks and roots). The course starts on asphalt and then leads into the woods for a truly beautiful run through the countryside. All proceeds benefit ACORNS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) "friends of the park" group that enhances the public’s experience at the Genesee County parks and fosters environmental stewardship and education.

NEW THIS YEAR: 10K 2-PERSON RELAY TEAM EVENT! You and a friend, relative or colleague can join up to compete in a 2-person relay team over the 10K course. Each person will run approximately 5K. Best team time wins!

Join us for the Kids Fun Run! Free to youth 10 & under. Must register on race day. Age-appropriate categories and distances. Run is on a grassy playing field. Everyone is a “winner”!
