RUN FOR THE WOODS

A Virtual Community 5K Run/Walk
Benefiting Baltimore Woods Nature Center
September 22 - October 6, 2021

This fall, nature lovers, sports enthusiasts, families, and their supporters from across Central New York and beyond will gather at their starting lines to run or walk a virtual race in support of year-round environmental education programs for all ages and stewardship of the Baltimore Woods preserve.

Join dozens of individuals and families in celebrating the beauty of the autumn season by running or walking a 5k between September 22-October 6 and uploading your time to compete for prizes! We are seeking individuals, families, and teams to participate in this year’s event - every mile you log will not only be recreational time outdoors, but also support Baltimore Woods Nature Center!
