Description
French Park originally started out in its entirety as a farm, is now one of the city's most picturesque parks.The 3.4 mile course will take runners through almost everything that the park has to offer. Starting at the top of the hill, runners will descend down into the meadow, through the tall grass, and then run the perimeter before heading into the interior of the park. The course will follow the creek and cross it several times, giving runners the option to either tiptoe over stepping stones, use log bridges, or dash directly through it. The course will then gradually rise back to the shelter and meadow where it began. The event coincides with Father's Day for 2017. 
This is the fourth leg of the 2017 Dirt Days Trail Series.
