Tread the Trails

Tread the Trails


Have you ever wanted to get out and explore our growing trail network by foot, but aren’t sure where to start?

Join the Fort Wayne Running Club, City of Fort Wayne, City of New Haven, and Fort Wayne Trails as we launch Tread the Trails! Join us every other Thursday for a free guided run/walk with 5k/10k distances. The runs/walks will begin at 6:00 pm every other Thursday throughout the summer and will take place from the same starting point as our weekly Trek the Trails rides, which take place on Tuesday evenings.  Participants are asked to come prepared with water, although there may be times when water is provided. This event is designed with all ability levels in mind and is family-friendly, and each group will have a “sweeper” to ensure no one is lost or gets left behind. Routes may be a loop or an out and back, and we intend to have signage to mark the halfway points for each distance.

Severe weather may cancel the event. Check the Fort Wayne Trails Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter at least 1 hour before the ride, if you are unsure.

**Please note that the kick-off event will be held on Tuesday, April 26th. All following Tread the Trails events will take place on Thursdays.

Need more information?

Please register here if you’d like to attend. This will assist us in providing improved communication with you, track how many people we might see at each event, and provide a way for you to give us anonymous feedback about your Tread the Trails experience and ideas about trail development. Signing up will also register you for a chance to win some goodies from local running stores at the end of the season! All walkers/runners can “sign-in” at each event for an additional chance to win! You only need to register online one time per season.

JOIN US FOR THE TRAILS KICK OFF PARTY!


Be sure to stick around after the run/walk for our annual kickoff party which will be held in the Salomon Farm Park Barn. Enjoy music, heavy appetizers from our friends at Mad Anthony, a cash bar, and an update from The City of Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Trails on upcoming projects and trail happenings! Tickets are $10 for adults and children under 16 are free. The party will be held from 6:30 to 8:30.
