Where the Wild Things Run 5K

March 7, 2020 

Walkers, joggers, and runners: come explore your wild side on the scenic nature trails at Caw Caw Interpretive Center. Caw Caw is actively managed for a variety of wildlife and a favored habitat for rare wildlife, so there is also the chance you may see a "wild thing" or two!  Adults and kids alike are encouraged to take advantage of family-friendly yoga and readings from Maurice Sendak’s book, Where the Wild Things Are. After the race, stick around for the awards ceremony.

"This is one of the best kept 5K secrets in America. Sandy dirt roads, forest trails, grassy levees and boardwalk - all in one race! Absolutely spectacular."
