Foxtrot 5K & 10K

We are excited to announce that this year’s Fox Trot will feature a 5K and a 10K, too! With the success and great feedback from our first-ever fall race (Coyote Crawl 5K and Head for the Hills 10K), we have decided to offer a 10K option for our spring race. Our Seventh Annual Fox Trot will be held on Saturday, April 9.
Please mark your calendars and save the date for Fox Trot 2022!
Sign up to receive advance notification of when registration opens. Proceeds from the run benefit the cemetery’s community support programs like the Garden of Angels and educational tours.
