Friends of Crossroads welcomes all runners and walkers to the 9th annual Crossroads Trail Run at Crossroads at Big Creek on June 24.
Participants have the choice of three routes: a 2k fun run/walk, 5k and 10k run/walk, all with chip timing. Depending on the course, trails take runners through white pine woods, over wooden bridges crossing Big Creek, weaving through meadows, mixed hardwood forest, past the Leif Everson Observatory, Maki Arboretum and beyond. Trails include single- and double-track, with woodchip, gravel and dirt foundations. Each mile is marked.
All finishers receive a native tree donated by Evergreen Nursery. All participants receive a Greenlayer performance shirt, post-event refreshments of homemade vanilla ice cream, Lautenbach cherries and freshly made energy squares.
Awards are made locally by artists and businesses. Female and male top overall winners in the 5k and 10k will be awarded a one-of-a-kind handcrafted bowl by local ceramic artist Liz Butler. First place gets maple syrup from Henschel Farms, second place gets honey donated by Max and Dees Honey Bees, third place gets homemade chopped cherry jam by Bea’s Ho-Made Products and youth awards are from Door County Candy.
Proceeds support the Crossroads Ski-for-Free program and the general fund. For more information and to register go to CrossroadsRun.com.
