We love running trails and want to share some of our favorite awesome trails with you - especially sections of the park that don't get used very often. It's a great intro to trail running, the Brandywine Creek Park Area, and a chance to meet fellow runners.

We'll head out from the parking lot and run a challenging, but fun, 7 to 8-mile loop on the trails throughout the park. The group trail run is no drop (seriously, we won't leave you behind), FREE and all are welcome to join. What does no drop really mean? We will wait at the tops of hills and turns to make sure that no one gets left out in the woods. If the group does happen to break apart, there will be someone in the front and the back that knows the route so that you don't get lost.
