Run The Parks 5k Series: January
MetroParks of Butler County
Walk, Hike, or Run with us this year in our Run The Parks 5k Series as each month we explore a different MetroPark throughout Butler county. This family-friendly, non-competitive 5k series will take place on the first Saturday of every month, with route details provided through online registration.
January: Rentschler Forest Join us for a chilly run of Rentschler Forest as we explore all the highlights of the park in winter. Run along the Great Miami River, follow the Miami-Erie Canal, Checkout frozen Waterfalls as you move through the forest, and explore the newly rerouted Pumpkin Vine trail. Wrap up the 5k with hot chocolate and light snacks by our fire pit at the finish line.
This 3.2-mile marked course is a mix of paved and natural surface trails and may be subject to snow. There will be a water and first aid station at the 1.5-mile point, then return to it at 2.7 miles. Specific details about the route will be provided via email the week of. Packet pickup begins at 10:00 AM, and the race starts a 10:30 AM.
Everyone who enters will receive a Run The Parks sticker. Registered participants will receive tiered prizes based on how many of the twelve 5k’s they participate in. (Prizes to be announced at a later date)
Participants only need to register once for the year and then may participate in as many runs as they would like.
