Celebrate the fall colors and changing seasons with a trail run through Secor and Wiregrass Metroparks!! There will be two races - an 8 miler and a 5K (full disclosure...due to the need to use existing trails, the distances are actually about 7.7 and 3.3 miles. So you have the opportunity to set PR's in a new distance!!). Both races start at Secor Metropark on the all-purpose trail. Runners in the 8 miler will start adjacent to the Secor Room at Secor Park, follow the all-purpose trail counter-clockwise, connect to the Moseley Trail and follow it to Wiregrass Lake, then do a loop around the lake and return on the Moseley and all-purpose trails to the finish at the Secor Room. Runners in the 5K will run one loop of the "long version" of the Secor park all-purpose trail. Both courses are flat and non-technical. Walkers are welcome in the 5K.
Packet pick-up: (1) at Second Sole: Friday, October 21st (noon-6 p.m.), Saturday, October 22nd (10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) and the morning of the event until 8:45 a.m.
The Falling Leaves event is one of three events in the Toledo Roadrunners Club Trail Series presented in partnership with Metroparks Toledo and sponsored by Second Sole. Other races in the series are Where's the Dam Half and Quarter Marathons at Providence Metropark on July 24th and the Oak Openings Stampede 50K, 25K, and 5K at Oak Openings Metropark on September 18th. Registration for these events are also available on RunSignUp. Proceeds from the events benefit SewHope, a non-profit that serves the poor in Guatemala (www.sewhope.org).
