The Washington Environmental Council and the Steep Rock Association are partnering for their third annual “Love Your Mother-Earth Day” 5K and 5 Mile road/trail race on Saturday, April 27. The race takes place at the Steep Rock Nature Preserve located at 2 Tunnel Road in Washington. The 5K course is flat, fast, and runs along the scenic Shepaug River. The more challenging 5-mile route includes rolling hills and beautiful views. The cost is $20 for pre-registered runners for both the 5K and 5M options. The cost is $25 for runners registering the day of the event. The Love Your Mother-Earth Day 5K/5M is sponsored by Ericson Insurance Advisors and Brierwood Nurseries. All proceeds benefit WEC and Steep Rock.
Same day registration and race-bib pick-up are available from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. on April 27th. The race starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. This is an eco-friendly event, so participants are encouraged to bring their own water bottle or cup to use at the water station. There will be great post race snacks and prizes!
Pre-registration is available at www.fastracktiming.com

Runners and walkers are both welcome. Additionally, participants and spectators are encouraged (but not required) to join WEC in their annual roadside cleanup after the race.
The event also features a sneaker drive. Please bring gently used sneakers tied together by the laces. All shoes will be donated through Woodbridge Running Company to the Rerun shoe program.
