Dec 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating indefinitely
Enjoy the 6th Annual Monastery 5K-Run / Walk through the beautiful Monastery grounds!
Bring the whole family and join the run or fun-walk on a “behind the scenes” 3.1 mile trail route through the serene Monastery landscape. These trails are only open to the public on special occasions so you don’t want to miss your chance to see them!
After the race, take the family to stroll the Arabia Mountain PATH. This scenic hike and bike trail goes through the monastery woodlands to the 500-foot bridge that spans over the rushing South River.
Then take the family to visit and enjoy the Monastic Heritage Center, which features a display of the history of monasticism. You will also enjoy shopping in the gift shop and Bonsai store as well as a stroll through the Bonsai Garden.
