Well, it is official! The Active Works online registration for the ThorpeWood Trails 2014 5K Fun Walk and 10K Trail Run is open. You can register online by clicking here.
We hope to make this year’s event even larger than last year’s! This annual event is so important to us because the funds raised by this race go directly to use in offsetting the costs associated with the use of ThorpeWood by the Frederick County YMCA Youth Programs, including Head Start.
Here at ThorpeWood, we partner with the Frederick YMCA in many ways throughout the year. From participants in their summer youth programs coming to ThorpeWood to participate in different activities – fishing, hiking, camping; to participation by both the youth programs and Head Start programs with our Equine Assisted Learning program – ThorpeWood and the Frederick YMCA are a perfect fit.
Your participation in our ThorpeWood Trails event is not only a wonderful way for us to help facilitate a perfect experience in nature – there really is nothing like a trail run/walk – it is also an opportunity for us to use a fun event to benefit truly fantastic members of our community. And although there are many fantastic 5Ks and 10Ks in our larger Frederick region, we would argue that our trail system and the experience of running or walking through our mountain trails…well, there is simply nothing else like it.
So, please consider joining us this year – and encourage your friends and family to do the same! It promises, like it has for the past six years – to be a fantastic morning on the mountain, for a wonderfully fantastic cause!
