Easter Bunny Trail Hop 5K
The Easter Bunny Trail Hop 5K offers a unique twist on a traditional trail run experience because the trail winds through Lake Conestee Nature Park on a mix of dirt, gravel, and pavement. Along the course, runners will find Easter eggs stuffed with goodies, and each runner may pick up one egg and match it to a prize at the finish line. There will also be a kids egg hunt after the race finishes for ages 8 and under to ensure that the entire family can participate.
Proceeds from the race support the Conestee Foundation. The Easter Bunny Trail Hop 5K is the second race in the seven-race Greenville Dirt Series. In order to be considered for the overall trail running championship for your age, you must participate in four races. Packet pickup will open at 7 a.m. on race morning, and there will be no advanced packet pick up. Online registration closes on March 29 at 2 p.m., but day-of registration is open. –Sara Pearce
