The Brier Creek Trail-A-Thon is a four-mile trail race, hiking event, and mountain bike enduro time trial hosted to raise money for additional signage on the Brier Creek Trail System. The event will begin at 8:00 AM with the Trail Run and will be followed by the Hike, and MTB Time Trial. There will be a kids’ fun run following the Trail Run.
Proceeds from the Brier Creek Trail-A-Thon will help fund new signage on and will make Brier Creek safer for cyclists and hikers. Signage will include a map with “you are here” markers allowing for quicker exits for lost trail users and improved response times in the event of distressed trail users.
