This year we'll be holding our GCA TrailBlazer 5k on 3.1 miles of the Bright Hope Trail located at the Bright Hope Horse Center directly across the street from the main entrance to Pocahontas State Park.

So, come on out, and  enjoy this beautiful park, we'll have vendors, face painting, a fire truck, Nutzy will be making a guest appearance, all the while helping to raise funds for much needed athletic equipment for Guardian Christian Academy. Extra Bonus - FREE Parking! That's right, there won't be any charge to park at Pocahontas State Park!
