Field & Forest 5K Trail Run at Flanders Nature Center

Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust will host its 7th Field & Forest 5K Trail Run on June 3 at 6pm, at the Flanders’ Van Vleck Farm & Nature Sanctuary, in Woodbury. All ages and skill levels of runners, joggers and walkers are welcome to register to enjoy this 3.1-mile run/walk through the trails and rolling hills of the picturesque nature center.

After the race, participants will enjoy live music by the popular local rock band, BluesyLand Band. Participants and spectators will be able to purchase food from local food trucks, Weenie Lynn’s, GV Bites and Polar Sweets. New this year, Flanders has partnered with The Mobile Pub to serve up beer and cocktails.

Awards will be given to top male and female finishers overall, as well as in six age categories ranging from age under 19 to over 60. The race will begin promptly at 6pm and will be held rain or shine; however, Flanders reserves the right to cancel in the case of lightning. The event cannot accommodate strollers or pets on the course.

Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust is a nonprofit organization that focuses on environmental education and on the acquisition, conservation and stewardship of open space. Flanders actively works to protect important natural sites and the area’s landscape character and quality of life, with over 2,400 acres of preserved land in Woodbury and neighboring towns.

Online registration for the trail run will close on June 2. The fee is $25 for all ages (plus processing fees). Same-day, in-person race registration will be $30.
