June 6, 2010 is the date of the Paris Runner’s Den Phlox Run. Read below for more info. See you there!
Runner’s Den, Paris 1st Annual “Phlox Run” 10k and 25k Trail Run
The panoramic vistas high above the pastoral Grand River valley are just one of the highlights you’ll enjoy as you cross
the pedestrian bridge near the start and finish of the 10km and 25 km races. Walkers are also welcome for a 10k walk. The
riverside trail meaders through beautiful Carolinian woods carpeted by purple phox, and both courses include interesting
topography that will challenge and delight all running enthusiasts.
Organized by the Paris Runner’s Den, both the 10km and the 25km race, as well as the 10K walk, start and finish at Brant Conservation Area, connecting sections of the Brantford Rail Trail with the Grand Valley Trail.
In addition to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Paris Runner’s Den, we also hope to promote health and fitness in our community, raise awareness to the trails, and to use some of the proceeds of the race for trail funding. It will be a professionally-facilitated run that will be challenging, but fun, and will include chip timing, prizes, food and beverages.
Count yourself as part of this historic inaugural event as we reach out to runners from our area and abroad.
