Event notes
Borrowing from the fable, this is a race for the slow as well as the fast. Speed alone is not the goal. The victory is in finishing the run. This is a good introduction to trail running (and to local trails), and the falls are a spectacular natural attraction. The ONE-MILE trail course is practically flat; it can be completed by anyone regardless of age. The 10 K+ (10.8 km or 6.7 miles) is a trail run on a small scale. It covers beautiful and varied terrain, the flat Larch Meadow Trail, the easy Bear Trail, the rolling Lake Trail, and only one long steep (400′ in 1/2 mile) hill. There are three restrooms on the course. Delicious refreshments are available at the finish line.


10K+: Kids 18 and under may pre-register for free. Race day registration for kids is $10.

Adults pay $15 for pre-registration, and FLRC members may deduct $5 for pre-registration only. Race day registration for adults costs $20, with no member discounts.

One Mile Fun Run: Free for everyone

No refunds.
