Flanders Nature Center Field and Forest 5K

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust is excited to announce plans for its 9th Field & Forest 5K Trail Run! The race is planned for Friday, June 7th at the Flanders’ Van Vleck Farm & Nature Sanctuary in Woodbury at 6 PM. All ages and skill levels of runners, joggers, and walkers are welcome to register to enjoy this 3.1-mile run/walk through the trails and rolling hills of the picturesque nature center. After the race, participants will enjoy live music by the popular cover rock band, The Leftovers. Participants and spectators will be able to purchase food from local food trucks, Kraftwich, Little Italy Pizza, and Polar Sweets. Local brewery, Woodbury Brewing Co., will be on site with their delicious brews for sale.

Online registration is ongoing but will close on June 6th. The fee is $30 for all ages (plus processing fees). Flanders will offer same-day in-person race registration for $40. Awards will be given to top male and female finishers overall as well as in 7 age categories ranging from age under 19 to over 70.

“We are looking forward to an awesome community event that historically has been a fun evening out for the whole family,” commented Heather Dever who is chairing the race. “We encourage people to register as soon as possible and bring friends and family for this great evening of fitness, food, and fun!” added Heather.
