5K and 10K trail races

2014 Race at Miller Springs

The Second Annual race at the Nature Center was a great success, with 184 people participating in the event. The original 5 mile course was enhanced with courses of 5k and 10k in length. Both began at the South Entrance, near the south end of the dam. The 5k course  wound through the forest and out onto the prairie. It passed alongside the Leon River,  over  the historic bridge, and across the prairie again, to the starting point. The 10k course was similar for the first 3K, then split off in the prairie area to Bee Suck Hollow. After climbing out of Bee Suck Hollow to the North Area, the runners crossed the emergency spillway, ran along the mural wall, and down the Tennessee Valley Trail, just above the Beaver Ponds. The return along the front of the dam had a slight but fast downhill to the  finish line. Feedback from the runners was very positive.  We look forward to the 2016 race!  Times and finishers are posted.
