Flanders Field & Forest 5K on June 4 at Flanders Van Vleck Farm & Nature Sanctuary in Woodbury

Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust is excited to announce the return of their popular Field & Forest 5K Trail Run!

 The race is planned for Friday, June 4th at the Flanders Van Vleck Farm & Nature Sanctuary in Woodbury at 6PM. All ages and skill levels of runners, joggers and walkers are welcome to register to enjoy this 3.1 mile run/walk through the trails and rolling hills of the picturesque nature center. After the race, participants will enjoy live music by the popular local rock band, Scratch, as well as be able to purchase food from local food trucks and local craft beer from Woodbury Brewing Company. Additionally, Flanders is offering a virtual option to allow participants who cannot attend to still participate from anywhere in the world!

The registration fee is $25 for all ages (plus processing fees). Those signing up by May 1st will receive a performance race shirt!  Registration will close on June 3rd and we will not have same day race registration. Awards will be given to top male and female finishers overall as well as in 8 age categories ranging from age under 10 to over 60.

“We are looking forward to an outdoor in-person event that historically has been a fun evening out for the whole family,” commented Heidi Ball who is co-chairing the race with Heather Dever.

“We encourage people to register as soon as possible and bring friends and family for this great evening of fitness, food and fun!” added Heather.

The race will begin promptly at 6PM and will be held rain or shine; however, Flanders reserves the right to cancel in the case of lightening. We are sorry but the event cannot accommodate strollers or pets on the course.

Race organizers thank their major event sponsors. We also thank the band members of Scratch, all of whom donate their time and talents to giving the event a fun and celebratory vibe.
