Under the Moon 5K Series
Run in the park after dark this summer.
Presented in Partnership with The Toledo Roadrunners Club
Experience your Metroparks under the light of the moon. Run or hike the 5k course after dark along a beautiful Metroparks Trail. Toledo Roadrunners place glow sticks lining the route marking your safe passage through the night woods. You are encouraged to decorate yourself with glow attire. This is a just-for-fun run/hike – with no official timing or scoring, so go at your own pace.
Everyone starts together at the scheduled time; for safety reasons, no late starts allowed.
