First Annual Coyote Crawl 5K & Head for the Hills 10K
We are excited to announce our first annual Coyote Crawl 5k and Head for the Hills 10k to be held on Saturday, November 13, 2021. Enjoy a 5K or 10K run through Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum’s 314 acres during the cooler temperatures of Fall. The rolling hills of Bellefontaine will allow a greater appreciation of the 87,000+ lives noted on the grounds of the oldest Garden Cemetery west of the Mississippi and the over 9,000 trees throughout the cemetery.
Please join us and benefit from an excellent fitness opportunity, enjoy the grounds and cooler weather, contemplate the stories, and know you travel the same pathways as scores of previous generations.
Virtual options are also available if you can’t make it in-person for this event.
