Nathan Chapman Memorial Trail

5K Course

Run for S'mores! The beautifully forested 5K course on the Nathan Chapman Memorial Trail is very flat and stroller friendly. Starting at Heritage Recreation Center, the course runs around the baseball fields then heads south and takes a large counter-clockwise loop around South Hill Park and forested wetlands. The course then progresses back toward Heritage Recreation Center's lower soccer fields, north along 94th Avenue, then west through the lower parking lot (next to Zeiger Elementary) and ends in between fields #2 and #3 inside the sports complex. This 5K course is chip timed. Results will be made available on our website the week after the race.

Enjoy a pre-race warm-up courtesy of South Hill Jazzercise, take a photo at our photo booth, and get warm with free coffee and cocoa. Finish the run by heading to the s'mores tent and fire pits to make delicious warm and gooey s'mores. 

This is a great winter fun run for the entire family! All ages and abilities are welcome!
