Running of the Goats 5K & Nature Walk

April 25, 2021 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Are you ready to run wild with the WNC Nature Center?! Join us for the first-ever Running of the Goats 5k and Nature Walk to support the animals you love!

1. Choose to run or walk the 3.1 mile course, which starts and ends at the WNC Nature Center. Begin your journey by catching a glimpse of the goats, bears, birds, and otters before heading out on a rolling, paved course.

2. Opt to walk only* inside the Nature Center along a paved route and see more animals waking up to start their day. Your self-guided tour will include fun, nature-related prompts and activities along the path. *In order to ensure the comfort of our animals, running is not permitted during the Nature Walk.

3. Participate at any time in any location with the virtual option.

No matter which option you choose, you’ll receive a race shirt (if registered by 4/11 at midnight) and a free guest pass to visit the Nature Center in the future. Nature Center goats Roddy and Rolo, Swiss and Alpine, and Bill and Ted will be cheering you on as you race to be the Greatest Of All Time!
