Attention runners and walkers, the annual Hunting Hollow 5K/10K Fun Run and Walk at Henry W. Coe State Park is coming June 11.

The beautiful Hunting Hollow Valley is surrounded by mountains on all sides. The relatively flat dirt trail course passes through late spring flowers such as California Roses, Lupines, Clarkias, with glimpses of Farewell to Spring blooms scattered through the grasses. Sycamore, Bay and Oak trees parallel Hunting Hollow Creek up the valley to the turn around for the 10K.

The course is fairly flat from the start to the turnaround. It is an in and out course with both the 5K and 10K starting at 9:00 at the gate at the end of the parking lot and also finishing there.

Participants can pre-register online through June 9 or by mailing in a registration form postmarked no later than June 4, said event organizer David Cartwright. “June 4 is also an important date for online registrants because that’s when the early bird discount expires and the registration fee increases from $30 to $35,” he said. “You can also register on race day for $40.”
