Description

The Running Wild 5K Run is going VIRTUAL and the 3K Scavenger Hunt will be self-lead onsite!!

Due to the recommendations from the CDC and the State of Indiana, we are changing Running Wild 5K Run/3K Walk into a virtual race. With a  virtual race you can run the 5K distance anywhere, in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, at a nearby park or on the 5K course here at St. Patrick’s County Park. You will have between Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 23 to complete your 5K. Once you have the 5K completed you will enter your time in the Run Sign-up website.

The Running Wild course will be set-up and ready for use anytime between August 15 and 23. If you ordered a Running Wild t-shirt and/or Running Wild collectible medallion, you can pick those up at the office at St. Patrick’s County Park anytime between August 17 and September 11.

If you are signed up for the 3K Self-Led Scavenger Hunt, the trail will be set-up and available to participants Aug 15-23 at St. Patrick's County Park. There will be a map and Scavenger Hunt list for you to download from the Run Sign-up website.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to Running Wild, please contact Jamie Hartzke at jhartzke@sjcparks.org. Thank you for supporting St. Joseph County Parks!
