Come celebrate national “Love a Tree Day” at our 5th annual Franklin 5k trail run. Join us for a run, jog or walk through the majestic forest of Historic Giddings Park. The 5K race is open to all ages and pets are also welcome. In addition to the all ages race, there will also be an 800 meter (.5 mile) run for kids 12 and under. The 5K will start at 8:00 am with the kids run starting at 9:15 am. Bib pick up will be on race day only and is located at Giddings Park from 7:00 am to 7:45 am. Online registration closes on Friday, May 15 at 6:00 pm and same day registration will be available for $35. There will be prizes for the top finishers and custom designed medals for everyone that completes the race.
Come dressed in theme for the race (woodland creature, forest ranger, tree hugger, etc.) and receive a free ticket for the basket raffle which benefits the students of Franklin Elementary School.
Get up, get dressed and get those legs moving as we celebrate everything nature has to offer!
The 5k will be chip timed by iRunCT.
