Virtual 5K Run & Kids' Raccoon 1K coming in October!
Every day is Earth Day at the Kalamazoo Nature Center! That's why we're excited to announce the re-launch of our annual Earth Day 5K and Kids Raccoon 1K run/walk for October 2020. These virtual runs will benefit KNC's early childhood education programs and celebrate KNC's 60th anniversary. Simply register online today, pick up your race packet safely this fall, and run or walk any time during the month of October.
We'll provide suggested, marked routes at KNC for both the 5K and 1K runs. You're welcome to run anywhere you choose, but we're certain you'll find our routes to be among the most beautiful in southwest Michigan. Plus, get a chance to win a KNC gift package by posting a photo to social media on the day of your run or walk. Just use the exclusive hashtag found in your race packet.
Nature's Way Preschool families: Watch this space for opportunities to complete your 1K run with your classmates.

Register by October 17th, then stop by KNC's Guest Services Desk during business hours September 26 through October 17 to pick up your run packet if you registered before September 12th.
