Longest Day 5K Results

Thank you to all that came out to enjoy the first day of summer by showing support to the Libby Hill trail system.  The rain stopped and the sun came out long enough for a new course record to be set, 17:43!  Congratulations Ben Garcia on a tremendous effort!

The full race results can be found HERE

Many local businesses continued to support the race through prize and food donations.  As always, all race profits go trail maintenance and winter grooming.

If you enjoy trail running and also trail riding, watch for a possible new event that is in the works for the fall.

Discovering the Heron Colony

A heron colony of over a dozen heron nests is very active every June and July.  This year promises to be another good year to witness this rare bird experience.  To learn more about the colony and how to find it go to our new heron colony page.heron colony 2015-019

The Longest Day 5K 2015

Note: Online registration has closed but you can register the day of the race between 5:30 and 6:30 on the day of the race!

Registration is now open for the 2015 longest day 5K.  This year it could also be called the Fathers day 5K.  So grab your dad and head over to Libby Hill to challenge yourself on a hilly trail run or just take a leisurely walk though the forest on the longest day of the year.  Of course moms are still invited.

The entry fee is still only $10 before 6/18 or $15 at the race.  GNG students run for free.  All proceeds go back to the trail system.
