Mission statement:
The purpose of the event is to create a greater awareness in the community of the extraordinary trail system that exists locally and do so in a way that is consistent with the mission of the Nature Center.

Ruby's Blog

Here are the ways we intend to achieve this goal:
1. Limit size of the field to the first 200 entrants to reduce the impact on the trails.
2. 100% paperless online registration through Active.com.
3. Water bottles with wrist straps instead of water stops.

Course:
The fourth annual event returns to the original course which features a variety of terrain including rails-to-trails, wooded single track and open prairie grass trails with beautiful views of the North face of the Blue Mountain and the Lehigh River.

The 2.3 mile Scamper course will remain the same and includes the challenging Bobolink Trail.

Warning:
Be advised that sections of the course are technical, rocky and steep. For more detailed course information, please check out the course page which contains a downloadable map and GPS waypoints.
