About:

6K around the Williams Creek Lake in Watkins Mill State Park. Starting Line is near the Beach. Large parking lots available. Race-Day registration will open at 7:00am. Race begins at 8:00am. We will have three separate timed chipped starts for runners, walkers and strollers. All ages welcome. Every participant receives a finisher medal. Get Outdoors Day event is designed to encourage healthy, active outdoor fun. Join us as we celebrate the day by running or walking a 6K at Watkins Mill Historic Site and State Park. The 6K will take place on our 8-foot-wide Paved Bicycle Lake Trail that circles the 100-acre Williams Creek Lake and has six wooden bridges and one metal truss bridge. The trail has a moderate grade as it weaves in and through oak-hickory woodland. There are many sights to see along the way as you are in the great outdoors. Come immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery of our historic park as you experience the wildlife and breathe in the fresh air on your run/walk.

Post Party:

2nd Annual Hug A Tree Post Party. Researchers, primarily in Japan and South Korea, have conducted studies on the health benefits of spending time among trees. Every study conducted so far has demonstrated reductions in stress, anger, anxiety, depression and sleeplessness among the participants. Many studies show that 15 minutes among trees blood pressure drops, stress levels are reduced and concentration and mental clarity improve. Join us as we have our Hug-A-Tree Post Party... you do not have to be a participant to participate.
