The Malta 5k Trail Race course begin at the soccer fields and quickly enters some of the best maintained trails in the area at 100 Acre Woods.
Most of the course is covered in stone dust and 6' wide. Other sections are on soft ground that feels like you are immersed in nature. This course is for everyone that loves to run or hike on trails with beautiful scenery the whole way! #Malta5kTrailRace

The thrill of running through the woods with fellow trail runners is amazing. There will be a homemade finishers medals for all finishers. Event shirt is also available for an additional cost(this keeps the race fee with no-shirt option is very low).
The path is wide enough for strollers, but we are not allowing strollers during this event due to safety concerns on the trail. There are steep ridges, water bars and hills that are not conducive to pushing a stroller. A strong stroller pusher attempted it on a practice run and swore he would never do it again.
The park does allow pets in general, but for this event we want to ensure all participants feel safe where there are ridges and hill climbs. We will follow the Road Runners Club of America policy not allow dogs to be run with participants during this race. https://www.rrca.org/education/event-directors/headphones-stroller-and-pet-guidelines/
