FY(effin')I: Run/Walk/Bike for Umstead
April 16, 2011

Umstead owlAs I was leaving the Reedy Creek entrance parking lot this afternoon—after a fantastic run on Company Mill—I grabbed a brochure advertising the Walk/Run/Bike for Umstead event. I hadn't yet seen information about this opportunity to support one of the area's best parks. So, I figure it won't hurt to spread the word.

Here's my summary:


Choose a 4-mile walk/run on a park trail, a 4-mile beginner mountain bike tour, or a 10-mile intermediate mountain bike tour. Enjoy live music along the trail and on the main stage. This is a community event for the appreciation, use, and preservation of William B. Umstead State Park. Funds raised will be used for controlling invasive plants, protecting native wildflowers, environmental education, and land acquisition.


Saturday, April 16 (rain or shine)


A private farm on Reedy Creek Road next to William B. Umstead State Park. The Walk/Run/Bike route starts and ends at the meadow and goes along the gravel, multi-use trail in Umstead State Park.

Now go read more about it on the Umstead Coalition's event page >>


  1. Thx for the info, I was recently in Umstead for the Marathon and April 16th seems like the weather will still be fairly incredible. :) Happy Running.

    Gotta Run,
