Arbor Day Run “Hustle for the Herd”

Adkins Arboretum

12610 Eveland Road

Ridgely, Maryland 21660

Join fellow runners and nature enthusiasts on Saturday, April 7 for the fourteenth annual Arbor Day Run. Proceeds from this year’s run will once again benefit the Arboretum’s goat herd, which is used for targeted grazing of invasive plants. The event features a 5K/10K Run/Walk, Kids’ Dash, and one-mile Family Fun Run/Walk. Registration begins at 8 am; races start at 9 am. Participants will pass by the Arboretum’s goat herd as they traverse the easily navigable cross-country course plotted along the Arboretum’s network of scenic forest and meadow paths. Post-race festivities include music, a “green” medal ceremony, and a native tree raffle. All registered 5K/10K participants will receive an “Arbor Day Run” t-shirt featuring the goats. Fun Run and Kids Dash participants may purchase a t-shirt for $10. Register on-line at www.adkinsarboretum.org. Registration forms are also available at the Arboretum’s front desk.
Chip timing provided.
