Great family event with something for everyone! NCTC is not normally open to the general public, so this is a wonderful opportunity made possible by our wonderful partners at NCTC. Come enjoy the beautiful trails through forests and fields along the Potomac River which are not normally open to the public. Participants will see an active Bald Eagle's nest, beautiful spring wildflowers and the fantastic facility that the US Fish and Wildlife Service calls home.
Choose from two trail runs—4+ mile and 7+ mile, a 2 mile Eagle Nest jog/walk or a 1 mile fun run for children under 10. Proceeds from this event benefit Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s environmental education and outreach for children and adults in our community — the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and Washington County, Maryland.
