Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust is excited to announce plans for its 7th Field & Forest 5K Trail Run!  The race is planned for Friday, June 3rd 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, BluesyLand Band. Participants and spectators will be able to purchase food from local food trucks, Weenie Lynn’s, GV Bites and Polar Sweets.  New this year, Flanders has partnered with The Mobile Pub to serve up beer and cocktails!

Awards will be given to top male and female finishers overall as well as in 6 age categories ranging from age under 19 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.
