Description:

Easter Egg Hunt & Trail Run in 1 (Everyone wins something!)

The Easter Bunny Trail Hop 5K offers trail runners a unique twist on the traditional trail run experience. Participants will run 5 kilometers on a rolling course that winds its way through the beautiful Lake Conestee Nature Park on a mix of dirt and pavement. Along the course, runners will find Easter Eggs stuffed with goodies. Each runner can pick up one egg and match it to a prize at the finish line. It’s an Easter Egg Hunt and a Trail Run all in one. If you’re lucky (and fast enough) you might even catch the Easter Bunny hiding some of the eggs…if you’re lucky. Everyone wins something!

Kids Egg Hunt: We will also have a special Easter Egg Hunt for the children ages 8 and under after the finish. Conestee features a large playground and smooth walking path for those with little kids, so bring the whole family for some fun. We welcome 5k runners and parents to help hide eggs for the kids. If interested, contact Steve Baker at Stevebaker864@gmail.com.

Lake Conestee Nature Park is one of the best facilities in the county, and this is a great opportunity to see all the fantastic improvements that have been made to this wonderful outdoor oasis. The Easter Bunny Trail Hop 5K is race #2 in the 7 race Greenville Dirt Series. Run at least 4 races in the series to be considered for the overall trail running championship for your age group. Details can be found at www.greenvillerec.com/trailraces. Special recognition will be given to folks who run ALL 7 races!
