On Saturday, October 8, The Crozet Trails Crew will hold their annual 5K Trail Race. Come and join the fun: run, jog, walk, or cheer on the participants. Starting and finishing at the soccer field at Claudius Crozet Park, the course winds 3.1 miles through the trails east of the park.
The course is relatively flat, but all trail. Registration is $20 on-line (check out the crozettrailscrew.org website for the RaceIT link) or $25 in person on Friday, Oct. 7, 6-8 pm at Crozet Running or Saturday at the park 7-8 am . All runners receive a race T-shirt as well as entrance into The Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival which is held right after the race. There will be great prizes for overall (first place male and female get a bridge named in their honor!) and age-group winners. There is also a prize raffle for some great prizes donated by local businesses following the race and all participants who are present will be eligible.
(for kids up to 7 years old) The kids race will take place on the soccer field at 8:00am. There is no registration fee, but please indicate on your registration form if your child plans to run. The course is one lap around the soccer field, approximately 400 meters. All finishers get a prize.
This is the major fundraiser for the Crozet Trails Crew, a grassroots community organization whose mission is to connect Crozet and Western Albemarle with trails and greenways.
