Creatures in the Forest 5K Run and 1 Mile Trot for Treats

Creatures in the Forest 5K Run and 1 Mile Trot for Treats will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

Protect, Connect, Restore… That is what we do here at West Creek Conservancy! To continue to protect our natural resources today and for future generations, we are hosting a trail run at the Keystone Pavilion. The purpose of the event is not only to raise money to support West Creek projects, but to create awareness of the organization and build relationships within the communities.

Creatures in the Forest 5K Trail Run is a partial off trail run through the West Creek Reservation.  You will race through a variety of terrain to help raise funds and awareness of West Creek Conservancy’s effort in creating a Greener Greater Cleveland. There will also be an optional 1-mile walk and a trot for treats 1-mile walk for kids 12 and under. After the run, everyone is invited back to the pavilion for food, beverages, music, and awards.
