Philosopher's Way Trail Runs

3/9/17 UPDATE: Philosopher's Way Course Tours: Saturday, April 1st, 8:30, Carolina North Forest

We'll gather at the main trail access parking lot off of municipal drive on April Fool's Day, no foolin'. These ever-popular course tours are a great way to visit as much of the 7K and 10 Mile courses as you'd like. Volunteers will assist, and there'll be coffee and snacks. We'll post an invite on the PWTR Facebook page to get a sense of numbers.

The TrailHeads are pleased to announce the Tenth Annual Philosopher's Way 7K and 10 Mile Trail Runs, scheduled for Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Both courses gently roll along single-track trails in the Carolina North Forest. We've added a section of new single-track to the 15K course to bring the distance to 10 miles, in alignment with our Little River Trail Runs.

The event will promote awareness of the Forest, UNC's active management program and will provide the participants and community a chance to learn and connect with the natural environment. Proceeds are donated to Carolina North Forest for trail planning and maintenance.

The 10 mile race will start at 8:00 a.m. and the 7K will start at 8:20 a.m. with door prizes and awards to follow.
