5K Trail Course, Adult and Child Events
Audubon’s Wild 5k is going partially virtual this year. The race course will still be set up through the trails at Audubon, but the course will be open for a week. Runners and walkers can complete the course anytime in daylight hours during race week and report their times if they choose. (Posting times is optional.) Winning times will be announced on July 27.
Come down alone or in your running group, taking the appropriate precautions as advised by New York State and the CDC. You can run the course as many times as you want, but may only submit one time. Please be aware that there may be Day Camp groups on the trails from 9:00 a.m. ― 3:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
This virtual race will also have fun virtual prizes!
Race through fields, forests, and across boardwalks as you speed toward the finish line. The money raised at this race benefits the habitats, trails, and bridges on the property.
Audubon’s trails have been used more by the public this year than usual, and volunteers and staff have worked hard to keep them dry and safe for walking and trail running. The Wild 5k is put together by a committee of volunteers and staff. If you would like to help, please contact the Nature Center at (716) 569-2345.
