Big Daddy Trail Fun Run / Walk

Are you a running enthusiast or do you just like supporting worth-while causes? Looking for a unique way to celebrate Father's Day this year? Whatever the case, come out and run (or walk) in our Big Daddy Trail Fun Run / Walk - fun for individuals or as a family gathering!

The event will be held this June 17, 2017. We will begin at 8:00 AM at the Cherry Street trailhead of the Olde Muskingum Trail, proceed south along the trail, cross the bridge at Butterbridge Road then continue north along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Runners/Walkers will finally cross the finish line in downtown Canal Fulton at St. Helena Heritage Park. This serene and historic route is an excellent course for beginners (as it lies along these level and easy-going trails), yet 5K runners may appreciate the challange offered by this 4.2 mile route.

You can register on-line March 10th to June 16th. You may also mail in your registration March 10th to June 10th. Pre-registrations, recieved before June 1st, will pay: Youths (age 17 and under) - $15; Adults (18 and older) - $20 . Registrations recieved after June 1st: Youths - $17; Adults - $25. Race Day: Youth - $20; Adult - $30. For more registration details download our Registration Form.

Check-in and race day registration will be 6:45 AM to 7:45 AM. Free parking is available at both the Olde Muskingum Trail and St. Helena Heritage Park. For those of you with a competetive edge, you will need to bring your own timing device. While, awards will be given to the first 3 females and the first 3 males to cross the finish line, this event is as much for families who just want to spend time together this Father's Day weekend in the great outdoors!
