Come run with us!

Drop-in for a free, casual trail run at beautiful Evergreen Brick Works and the nearby paths and trails, led by one of our staffers who love to run. Perfect for members with some running experience, we'll run an average distance of 5km-8km, with a focus on fun over speed. It's a no-drop run, so no runner gets left behind.
