Prairie Run participants run up and over rolling hills and along groundwater-fed ponds at the 2019 Prairie Run experiencing up close the autumn beauty of the Pioneers Park Nature Center’s tallgrass prairie. This year's Prairie Run, which benefits the tallgrass prairie, is set for Saturday, Nov. 6.

The Pioneers Park Nature Center invites runners of all ages to the eighth annual Prairie Run on Saturday, Nov. 6. The run starts at 9 a.m. at the Nature Center, 3201 S. Coddington Ave., and features hills and challenging terrain on 1-mile and 5K routes.

Check-in is at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at the Prairie Building. Fees are $12 for age 12 and younger, and $25 for age 13 and older. All participants or parents/guardians must also complete the participant waiver form online prior to or at the event. This event is not officially timed, and participants will receive a participation gift. Proceeds from the event support the Nature Center’s prairie habitat management work.
