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 run staffers. Perfect for those 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.
