Welcome to the “Run For L;fe” 5K/10K race event.

We feature a 5K Run/Walk and 10K Run to raise awareness to and the prevention of teen suicide. All profits go towards training teachers, aides, counselors and first responders on how to spot warning signs in at risk youth and what the next steps should look like.

On Nov. 2nd runners can choose to compete or complete a 5k Trail Run/Walk or a 10k Trail Run throughout Weldon Springs State Park.

5K Run highlights include the Start at the Chautauqua Picnic Area, running past the Weldon Springs Display, Lakeside Trail, a tour of the Union School Site, crossing the dam, Veterans Point, the Old Farm Trail while running past the Historic Cemetery and Finish at Chautauqua.

The 10K runners see and do all of the above with additional miles along the Schoolhouse Trail, Salt Creek Backpack Trail, Whitetail Ski Trail and a longer tour of the Old Farm Trail passing the Historic Cemetery and Farm buildings before heading back to Finish at Chautauqua.
