Cattle Crossing 5K & Family Fun Trek
June 1 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am MDT$25 – $35
Join Parker Parks and Recreation at Tallman Meadow Park for our third annual Cattle Crossing 5K and Family Fun Trek with RNK Running & Walking!! One of our most scenic events in our run series, this stimulating 5K course meanders through the historic Idyllwilde community under majestic tree canopies, past many feeder trails, and next to a small creek. Many will catch a glimpse of animals along the trail whether it be various birds, deer, or cattle so be sure to keep your eyes open! Keeping with the rustic theme of the event and getting in touch with Parker’s roots, western attire and cowboy hats are encouraged! (Running in cowboy boots is not recommended, however).
