Hecker Tiki Trot

  • Hecker Tiki Trot:- Run 3.1 Miles
Saturday, August 15, 2015

Hosted by St. Augustine Catholic Church

The "Tiki Trot" is a "bucket list" event for all runners and walkers and is one of the most unique races in the country. Picture yourself running down a quiet country road lined on both sides with over 200 burning tiki torches!! Whether you are an elite athlete wanting to run toe to toe with the best around or you are just looking to walk at a casual pace, there is something for everybody. Bring the family and come early for a great chicken dinner. After the race, stick around and enjoy great company, quilt bingo, frosty beverages, live music, and great snacks!!
