The McKaig Nature Center will be hosting its annual 5k Trail Run and Monkey Rock Miler on October 1st, 2017.

The race will take off from the festival area at Roberts School and travel through packed dirt, gravel and single track trails that weave in and out of this beautiful 91-acre wooded nature preserve.  Racers will have the opportunity to run on our newest trail while experiencing our signature stream crossings, meadows, bridges, and abundant scenery as you navigate this suburban oasis.  With a new course, upgraded prizes, custom bibs and new 2017 racer shirts, this is a race you won't want to miss.  Providing 411 feet of vertical elevation gain along with technical terrain, the McKaig 5k Trail is challenging enough for serious trail runners yet conquerable for those hitting the trails for the first time.  With a one of a kind course, lively festival area and great cause, this race has become a fall classic! 

Walkers will enjoy an easy, scenic journey to Monkey Rock to ring the bell and then return to the festival area for a morning of fun.

Participants may pre-register using the application below, via (registration open July 24th) or in person the day of the run.  Check-in will be in the Roberts Elementary School parking area beginning at 7:45 a.m. at 889 Croton Road, Wayne Pa 19087. Street parking available.
Award presentations will be made in the festival area behind Old Roberts Schoolhouse where there will be food, drinks, entertainment and free post race snacks for participants.  In addition, a food truck will be on-site to satisfy those looking to take their re-fueling to another level.
