More Information

Tanglewood Nature Center is excited to invite trail-goers back to Run For The Hills on Saturday, July 23rd, 2022!

This race offers two courses:

For individuals or families who like climbing hills, crossing creeks, and spotting wildlife, Run For The Hills offers its 5k course that will take you around the museum grounds, through meadows and forest.

For runners and hikers seeking more — more elevation gain, more views, more technical trail sections — Run For The Hills has you covered with a 10k course that leads you up to Tanglewood's highest point overlooking the Chemung River, drops you down, and weaves you through all of Tanglewood's meadows and forests.

All proceeds support Tanglewood’s efforts to fulfill its mission by maintaining over ten miles of free, public access trails, offering educational programming for children and adults, providing homes in its exhibits for more than 40 native and exotic animals, and welcoming over 35,000 visitors a year.

This race will have three start waves:

10k — Wave 1 — 8:00 am

5k —Wave 2 — 8:05 am

5k — Wave 3 — 8:10 am

*Timed by Falcon Race Timing

*Prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place female and male finishers in both 5k and 10k distances.
