Tilikum Trail Run and Family Fun
Monday, July 4, 2016
Join us for the 13th annual Tilikum Trail Run and help us get every kid to camp. Choose from a competitive 5K race, 5K fun run and 1-mile walk. Bring the whole family and make it a new Fourth of July tradition! 100% of the proceeds and donations go to the camp scholarship fund.
Participants in the competitive 5K and 5K fun run will make three loops on a trail encircling the lake at Tilikum, with sweeping views of the valley. Participants in the 1-mile walk will make one loop around the lake. The path includes gravel roadways, challenging hillsides, grass, and a pedestrian bridge Jogging strollers are welcome. Tilikum is a non-pet facility; please leave your pets at home.
Race awards will be given to the first place finishers in each category: (Race, Fun Run, Walk), gender (Male, Female) and age (Adult, Youth & Teen) categories.
Post Race Activities

The fee after 6/18/2016 goes up $10 per person. Day of race registrations ARE accepted (Visa, Mastercard, check or cash are accepted).
We want every child to have the opportunity to come to camp, no matter their socioeconomic status. Please consider creating a Tilikum Trail Run Fundraising Page individually or for your family/team and make a tremendous difference in the life of a child this summer.
Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 in camper scholarships at the Tilikum Trail Run. A team goal of $250 will allow one child to attend a week of day camp this summer. $500 would allow two children to attend day camp this summer. Create your own fundraising page which can be shared on Facebook or in your personal emails.
