Participate in a 5k Run/Walk on the Refuge for the first time ever! Would you rather run with the mascot of the National Wildlife Refuge System? We'll also have a mile fun run with Puddles the Blue Goose! Registration fees are $20 per person for the 5K (shirts included). Those participating in the Mile Fun Run with Puddles may also purchase shirts online for $10.
The course will be on the gravel hiking trails and provide you an opportunity to see a variety of habitats and wildlife. Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each age group. Each of these groups will also be awarded separately by gender. While leashed dogs and strollers are normally permitted on the hiking trails, during the 5K they are prohibited. This is a closed course with no vehicle traffic, so headphones are okay!
