Trail Run Fall

Into the Woods 5 Miler - October 17

The 3rd annual Into the Woods 5 Miler will continue to Kick Your Asbury as your test your mettle on the trails. Our 205 acres of property is the perfect place to present a challenging trail race. The scenic course through the Walnut Creek watershed will provide a mix of boardwalk, packed dirt trails, and single-course loops. This highly competitive five mile race is the anchor event but participants can choose a non-competitive two mile walk.

Trail Run Summer

Into the Woods 5 Miler | June 6

As you can imagine, we are disappointed to have to postpone our 3rd annual Into the Woods 5 Miler Trail Run scheduled for June 6. With the uncertainty surrounding Erie County and Pennsylvania's timeline for moving into Governor Wolf's Green Phase and the unlikelihood of large gatherings being permitted throughout the summer, we have decided to postpone the Into the Woods Trail run. For 2020 we had planned to offer a three run series, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we will be pushing the 5 mile trail race forward to October 17, 2020. This was the date already selected for the final leg of the series, instead it will now be the 5 miler installment.

Thanks for your understanding as we navigate the uncertainties and fluid situation. I hope you are still out enjoying the trails of Asbury Woods. It continues to be a place of recreation, comfort and physical and mental well-being for many people while so many other things have changed around us. While our Nature Center has been closed since mid-March, our trails have continued to be open as usual. When using the trails we ask people to take recommended precautions such as recreating with your family, maintaining safe distances from other guests, staying home if you feel ill, choosing times that are less crowded and avoiding contact with benches, rails, etc.

Thanks for your support of Asbury Woods! Can't wait to see you all on the trails very soon.

Take care, Jennifer Farrar Executive Director
