Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - 3:12pm

The Greenways Advisory Board will host a family-friendly 5K walk/run as part of National Trails Day on Saturday, June 1, at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. Check-in begins at 7 a.m., and the walk/run starts at 8 a.m.

The entry fee is $30 before May 24 and $35 through June 1. Everyone who registers before May 24 will receive a race T-shirt. Same-day registrations will be accepted. To register online, visit wakeforestnc.gov and search “National Trails Day 5K.”

Designed to raise funds to support the maintenance of current greenways and the development of new greenways throughout Wake Forest, the National Trails Day 5K is a timed walk/run for both children and adults. Strollers are welcome but will be placed at the back of the pack to allow runners a clear start.

Awards will be presented to the top three overall male and female finishers, along with the top three male and female finishers in several age categories.

A loop of the paved trails throughout Joyner Park will comprise the 3.1-mile course. The course map is provided on the Town’s website.
