LOVE YOUR HEART RUN: The 6.2 mile (10 K) route of the Love Your Heart Run offer spectacular views of Chewacla State Park. The 6.2 mile route begins and ends inside Chewacla State Park. For local runners, we are reviving an “old” course that allows runners a challenging climb to the summit of Chewacla State Park. Run will start at the bottom of the "hill" near the entrance to the park. Participants may run or walk the event!
CRANK YOUR HEART RIDE: New for this year, there will be one 15 Mile bike route. The 15 mile route will follow winding bike lanes on one of the most popular cycling routes in Auburn. A rest station will be provided on the route. This ride still includes a challenging climb to the summit of Chewacla State Park.
1 Mile Fun Run/Walk
This will start after the 10k has started near the lower pavillion. It will consist of 10 loops around a grass course. Great for the little ones (and adults) to show off their speed!
