Heritage Trail 5K Fun Run-Walk

VCTA's first ever 5K Fun Run-Walk will begin at 8AM with a Kids 2K Fun Run to follow at 9AM.  From 8AM - Noon we will be handing out free snacks, water and a "I LOVE VC TRAILS!" Buttons from our location in the Portino's parking lot.  You will have the opportunity to renew or start a new VCTA membership for a one-time special fee of $5.00.   VCTA is a non-profit organization.  100% of your membership fees and donations go toward building more trails like the Heritage Trail.

Registration Fees for the 5K Fun Run-Walk are:  $5.00 for current members and $10 for non-members.  All paying participants become VCTA members for the rest of 2017.  Kids 2K is Free.  All 5K finishers will receive an "I LOVE VC TRAILS!" Button, a cool VCTA bumper sticker, and an envelope filled with exclusive offers from local businesses.   

Built 8 years ago, The Heritage Trail is 2 1/2 miles long and goes from Cole Grade to Woods Valley.  It has become an integral part of our community and a very popular place to walk, run and ride.  We look forward to seeing you on the trail!
