Crossroads 15th Annual Trail Run!

We crossed the finish line and wrapped up another AMAZING Trail Run!

The 15th Annual Trail Run was at near record participation! The weather was perfect, with volunteers from ages 2-99 years old! Each participant received a native tree courtesy of Evergreen Nursery! Participants also enjoyed cherry granola ice cream sundaes as a way to celebrate their victories courtesy of Lautenbach’s Orchard.

Those with the best times in each category received local maple syrup, soap, and native honey. Honey was graciously provided by the Door County Beekeepers Club. Fastest runners in the 5k and 10k were awarded beautiful bowls by local potter Liz Butler.

Every year we are humbled by the show of community support through sponsorship, in-kind donations, volunteer help, and the runners and walkers of all ages who make each year a success. We are grateful for all who support Crossroads, including The Cordon Family Foundation, generously matching sponsorships up to $15,000.
