7th Annual Run For the ACORNS 5k/10k Trail Run/Walk @ Genesee County Park & Forest
Oct 6 all-day
Walk or run on single and double track trails through the forest, along a creek and up and down rolling hills in the Genesee County Park & Forest, with an estimated 100 feet of climb in the 10K loop. Trails are very wide and easy to negotiate (minimal rocks and roots). The course starts on asphalt and then leads into the woods for a truly beautiful run through the countryside. All proceeds benefit ACORNS, a non-profit 501(c)(3) “friends of the park” group that supports Genesee County Parks by connecting people with opportunities for outdoor learning, exploration and fun. Kids Fun Run! Free to youth 10 & under. Register on race day. Age-appropriate categories and distances. Everyone is a “winner”! Free to youth 10 & under. Must register on race day. NEW THIS YEAR: 10K 2-PERSON RELAY TEAM EVENT! You and a friend, relative or colleague can join up to compete in a 2-person relay team over the 10K course. Each person will run approximately 5K. Best team time wins!

Since 2006 ACORNS has provided financial and volunteer support for projects and programs that enhance and supplement the recreational, environmental and educational activities at the Genesee County parks. Our activities include staffing the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting at environmental education programs, funding displays at the Nature Interpretive Center, assisting with biological surveys, participating in trail and facilities maintenance, and funding a Volunteer Coordinator. Plans also include continued development of the Outdoor Learning Center.

50 Mile – Run one big road loop around the most beautiful Finger Lake in Western New York. The course is mostly flat to rolling roads with several major climbs, including locally-famous Bopple Hill.

50K – Run point-to-point over the final 31 miles of the 50 Mile route. With significantly less climbing and descending than the first 19 miles of the 50 Mile route, the 50K is more friendly for first-time ultra runners and a logical step up from the marathon.

25Km – Not ready to run ultra yet? Try 25Km instead! Run point-to-point over the final 14.5 miles of the 50 Mile/50 Km route after running short out-and-back starting on and using South Lake road. Time limit is 6 1/2 hours. Minimum average speed to complete 25Km race is 2.07 miles per hour or 25 minutes per mile. Please note that 25Km race won’t allow pacers and handlers.
