Woldumar 5k Trail Run

Runners, walkers, and nature enthusiasts! You are invited to come enjoy the beauty of fall on the trails of Woldumar Nature Center. This year, with the help of @JCILansing, our race will be a hybrid event, so those unable to run in-person are encouraged to participate remotely in their own neighborhood, backyard, treadmill, or local trail the week of November 7th-13th OR participate in-person with others at our chip-timed event on Sunday, November 7th at 9:30 a.m.

Not only is this the perfect fall run on a beautiful course, but MOST IMPORTANTLY your participation supports quality science education that instills passion for the natural world in young people throughout the Greater Lansing Area. Your support furthers our mission: "To educate people about the natural environment."
