About The Race
The 3.1 mile/5K course is a two lap scenic trail run around the recreation fields and through the wooded frisbee golf course behind New Hanover Presbyterian Church.
The Kids Run 'Round The Ark is approximately .5 mile as they complete two-laps around the measured perimeter of Noah's Ark.
The 3k Kids Run to Stop Hunger is for young runners (ages 6 - 12) who want to experience trail running but aren't quite ready for a 5k.
