The second annual Run Victoria National 5k run/walk is coming up Saturday, May 27. And this year, a 10K run option is available!  Last year, my husband and I participated in the 5k which gave us a chance to see this beautiful golf course for the first time!

Proceeds from this race directly support Warrick Trails to help fund new pathways and new paved trails throughout Warrick County. Volunteers will be adding 30 miles of new trails and shared roadway bike routes. Trails will be connected to the east side of Friedman Park to Boonville via an 8.5 mile shared roadway route. A new trail will be connected west from the park to a new trailhead on Anderson Road. From Anderson Road the trails will connect to the Vann Road ballfields.
