About the Series

Trails to Hope 

We want to stay healthy.  We want to make a difference.  We are not only an active outdoor community but also a community of people who truly care about each other.  “Trails to Hope” is a trail running series founded to build awareness to the needs in our own community and raise money for local charities who give Hope to those in need.

The “Trails to Hope” series is opened to the competitive and non-competitive runner as well as those who like to hike and enjoy the outdoors.  Every week will feature a different course including a night run and a luminary display on the final event. There will be opportunities to sign up for each of these events on our registration page.  Proceeds from each race will go to the non-profit organizations recognized below.
