The 2nd Annual “Running Green for Crossroads,” the only eco-aware trail run in Door County, will take place on Saturday, June 25 starting at 9 am. All of the courses, including a 2Km, 5Km and 10Km trail walk or run are staged on the woodlands and open fields in and around Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.
At last year’s event, more than one hundred competitive male and female runners took up the 5K and 10K running challenges, with an equal number of walkers taking on the 2K and 5K events. Race organizers sought to create a 100 percent sustainable and green event with participants expected to bring and carry their own water. Snacks and prizes will again lean towards the “natural and organic,” donated from local businesses. All proceeds from the race will support the Crossroads at Big Creek, a non-profit nature-based learning center.

Door County Memorial Hospital Ministry Health Care is providing generous funding and health care support for the event. Evergreen Nursery will again donate fir trees to be given away – one to each and every participant as they cross the finish line.
