    We appreciate your support. Implementing trails into the park system is important to us. We frequently have families ask us where they can take their children to show them different aspects of nature. The trail system will serve for learning, family enjoyment, and exercise. The funds raised from the previous years have helped with the Umber Ridge Trail located within Stockton State Park. This trail is 1.75 miles with natural terrain. The park is also home to the .5 mile Nyblad Trail - perfect for a quick hike.  Additionally, work on the 8 mile  Lakeview Trail is in progress. The Lakeview Trail is expected to open Spring 2014. Stockton State Park is also home to a 6.5 mile Water Trail, perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding, or canoeing. 

The 2013 event was our largest, with approximately 150 entrants. Our goal for 2014 is 200!

 We offer prizes for the Overall M/F and Masters M/F as well as top 3 M/F in each age division for the 5k. We also have drawings for prizes such as gift certificates to local businesses as well as to Stockton State Park Marina. Sometimes we give away a little cash!

5k Age Divisions: 0-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+

Age division winners will receive custom medals. Overall M/F and Masters M/F winners will receive custom plaques and a free entry into the 2015 race. 

We are trying to make our event as green and environmentally friendly as possible.  We strongly encourage online registration (, but paper registration will be available as well.

We will offer recycle bins at the race for water bottles and cups. If you have a favorite water bottle, we encourage you to bring it along.
