Join us June 3, 2017

Families and individuals who love a beautiful run or walk are invited to Eagle Ranch’s Run the Ranch 5K and Fun Run. Participants will enjoy shaded, tree-lined paths and beautiful paved roads with pasture views. Whether you come to run, walk or cheer others on, the day will be fun for all. After the morning’s athletic events, snacks and activities will be available. Enjoy a picnic at our lakeside pavilion and family time on our playgrounds, athletic fields and courts. This is a special opportunity to see Eagle Ranch’s private 310-acre campus and support our mission to help make life better for children and their families. Please no pets.
