Face the Forest 5K Obstacle Course Run

August 20, 2022 from 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Are you up for an adventure? Challenge yourself to beat the clock as you take on a 3.1-mile obstacle race through Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest plantation encountering obstacles (and some mud) along the way! Entry fees will support children’s educational programming at programming at Poplar Forest and the YMCA of Central Virginia’s annual campaign.

Runners, test your mettle on a run through the hills, dales and woodlands of Poplar Forest plantation. Join the Jamerson YMCA and Poplar Forest for the annual Face the Forest 5K Obstacle Course Run and take on the obstacles—climbing walls, balancing teeter-totters, flipping tires and trenching through mud—placed along the way. The competition is open to families and teams of all ages.
