Wildrock's Tree Hugger Hike/Race begins at Wildrock at 8:00am on June 23rd. The loop is a strenuous 4.3 mountain trail run into neighboring Patricia Byrom Forest Preserve. This trail goes through forest, over streams and around large boulders -- a true off-the grid escape! Charlottesville Track Club will help manage the run. At 11:00am, a family friendly 1.3 loop will open up, starting in Wildrock's Apple Meadow. Hug 20 specially selected trees on the trail before returning to the Wildrock Barn Center for food truck specials, prizes, face painting, games, and relaxation under the willow tree (or free range exploration on Wildrock's playscape.) All ages are welcome. Admission for the 8:00am race and the family hike is $25 per runner/family. Funds raised will support Wildrock's On Solid Ground Outreach Program serving families and human service workers facing high stress circumstances. Register here.
