TIME CHANGE NOTICE: BOTH events will begin at 9 am. (8k previously scheduled to begin at 9:15 am). 


The Calhoun County Trail Run is an 8k and 20k that takes place on the beautiful Calhoun County Trail including both Bridge Park and Ott Biological Preserve for the 20k and Bridge Park for the 8k. The rolling hills and beautiful scenery, rock walls, and bridges make the run a must add to your fall line up. The trail is gravel surface and non-technical. The run will take place entirely on the trail, with a few street crossings. 

We are doing our part in being good stewards of our community and working towards limiting waste. The Calhoun County Trail Run will be completely cup free. Water stations will be available to fill your own reusable cup or water supply. 

Proceeds benefit the Calhoun County Trails and Parks.

The event will start at end at the new and improved Kimball Pines Park. While the park had been underutilized for many years, a recently passed millage is funding a complete transformation of the park!
