Crossroads Hosting Trail Run

 

For years, Crossroads at Big Creek has hosted lectures on sustainability. The lectures were excellent, but the people who attended the lectures were, for the most part, already committed to sustainability. There had to be a better way to introduce learners of all ages the concepts of "green living." There was. And that was why Running Green for Crossroads, Door County's first and only trail run, came into being.

Start time for this year's Running Green is 8:00 am, Saturday, June 22. The run promotes cross-generational recreation and increases awareness of "green living." Proceeds from the event support the general fund at Crossroads. 

Participants of all ages can choose from a 2K fun run/walk, and a 5K or 10k run with chip timing. The trails pass through coniferous woods, over wooden bridges crossing Big Creek, weaving through meadows, old orchards, through the Astronomy Campus and beyond. Trails includes single and double track, with wood chip, gravel and dirt foundations.

The event's major sponsors make it possible for all walkers and runners to receive sustainable items. All finishers receive a potted evergreen tree (provided by Evergreen Nursery.)  Pre-registered participants will receive a USA-made performance Atayne shirt made from 100%  recycled fabric, a re-usable water bottle (donated by Ministry Door County Medical Center) and thanks to Sturgeon Bay Utilities, a market bag containing an eco-light bulb and safety flasher.

Because "buying local" is a sustainable practice, all awards were created by local artists and post-race refreshments will be locally-produced ice cream topped with Door County Cherries and granola.  A listing of the prizes, local artists and producers along with course and registration information can be found at http://www.crossroadsrun.org/.
