About the Event & Course
The Rams Rise & Run is a family friendly 3k event that takes place upon the Ram Trails. The Ram Trails are a series of grass and dirt paths that weave through woods and around a pond. While being off road, the trails are well maintained - with minimal roots or ruts - and are used for competitive High School Cross Country 3k and 5k races. Its rolling design is fast for the competitive runner to run a fast time, while friendly for recreational runners of all abilities to enjoy running off the pavement.
**Note: The trails are not stroller friendly. No dogs are allowed**
