Join fellow runners and nature enthusiasts for the thirteenth annual Arbor Day 5K/10K Run and One-Mile Fun Run/Walk.  Proceeds will benefit the Arboretum’s goat herd, which is used for targeted grazing of invasive plants.  Race t-shirts will feature the goats, and post-race snacks will include goats’ milk cheese and crackers.  The event offers a 5K Run/Walk, a 10K Run, and a one-mile Family Fun Run/Walk.  Races begin with a Healthy Kids’ Dash at 8:50 a.m. Participants will pass by the Arboretum’s goat herd as they traverse the cross-country course plotted along the Arboretum's network of scenic, easily navigable paths.  Post-race festivities include refreshments, an awards ceremony with one-of-a-kind tree ring medals, and a native tree raffle.   All registered 5K and 10K participants will receive an “Arbor Day Run” t-shirt with an image of our goats.  Fun Run and Kids Dash participants may purchase a t-shirt for $10.  Register on-line at  Chip timing provided by BluePoint Race Management.
