Monastery 5K Run Fun/Walk
Jun 11, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm$20 – $25
Join the 7th Annual Monastery 5K Run Fun/Walk
Runners and walkers will have a unique opportunity to trek through the Monastery woodlands to enjoy the serene and peaceful landscape. The race starts in front of the Monastery Visitor Center and then goes on the trails that weave among the monastery’s scenic woodlands and lakesides. Some of this area is only open to the public during this event! You’ll run past lakes filled with ducks and open fields with amazing views. You’ll run up repentance hill (a 1/4 mile challenging hill in the middle of the course). Then through more amazing trails and end up at the Visitor Center.
Stay after to enjoy the heritage center, shop in the area’s most unique giftshop or join us early for Mass with the Monks.
