Saturday, June 30th- 9AM

A community of cross country runners will gather again at Ganondagan State Historic Site to take on the demanding “Charlie’s Old Goat Run.” This challenging five-mile (plus or minus) trail race leads runners through hills, streams, rocky outcroppings, slippery mud boardwalks, forests, and lush meadows. It showcases the camaraderie and beauty of off-road running while giving back to the community. Part of the proceeds help maintain Ganondagan’s trails that are free and open to the public year round.
