Crozet Running 5k Trail run!!

May 9th- Come experience the beautiful trails of Mint Springs Valley Park with the second annual Crozet Running Trail 5K!  Enjoy a great morning at the park as this challenging course winds up and down the mountain trails and finishes at the pavilion at the upper lake.  This year there is a $5.00 registration fee, but all kids 12 and under are free!  All proceeds go to benefit the Crozet Trails Crew.  This is a community event, meant to bring runners, kids and families, and walkers all together on the trails.


Yes, it’s 2015

I have thought about writing a new post several times in the last few months, but then I’d see the photo of Scruggs in his pink hat and decide it should stay at the top a little longer.

With the onset of less winter-like weather, I am feeling trailsy! We have a lot of great items on our 2015 goals (seen here) and I am excited about the prospects.

Our next workday is really a trail workshop with Albemerle COunty Parks and Rec. It will be held on March 21st at Mint Springs Park. Go to Events Calendar for all the info. Please RSVP by March 20th at noon.

Hope to see you all on the trails!
