John’s Run Walk Shop Spring Trail Runs!

Below is our Spring trail run schedule through April! As always, all runs are free and open to all distances, paces, and abilities (including hikers)! Be sure to sign up on RunSignUp for any runs you plan to attend so we can prepare carpool logistics and post-run coffee/snacks.

Sunday 3/26- Capitol View Park

Gentle multi-purpose trails overlooking the Capitol Building. The trails are easy for any distance depending on how much you want to repeat. It’s a short, easy drive from Lexington!

Sunday 4/2- Carter Caves

An awesome 8.5 mile 4C’s trail loop that actually runs through a cave and crosses a suspension foot bridge. It’s easy to make this loop longer or shorter to meet your needs.

Sunday 5/7- Red River Gorge

Red River Gorge has perhaps the best trail running opportunities in all of Kentucky! We’ll be doing an out-and-back on Whittleton/Sheltowee from the Whittleton campground. It’s easy to make this as short or long as you want, depending on how far you go before turning around. Meet up at the parking lot across from the Whittleton campground entrance.
Meet at John’s to carpool: 7:15 AM
