Register for the Footprints In The Forest IX

Footprints In The Forest IX
Sunday, October 13th, Bald Mountain State Park (Harmon Entrance)

Join us on the stunning trails of Bald Mountain State Recreation Area at the peak of Fall colors in support of the Emma Lee Aisthorpe Scholarship Fund for teachers through Wayne State University.  Whether you choose the 4-Mile Run or the 2-Mile Non-Competitive Fun Hike, you can't lose.  This is a family-friendly event with age group prizes (for the run portion) a great post-race spread and valuable raffle prizes!  Many of our paticipants walk away with prizes worth more than their registration fee!
