About This Event

Come join us for the 8th annual Mint Springs Trail 5K (formerly Crozet Running Trail 5k) at Mint Springs Valley Park in beautiful Crozet, Virginia.  This is a family friendly event, but is also a challenging trail 5K course for runners of any experience level.  The course winds up Bucks Elbow Mountain, through beautiful single track trails with views of the valley below, and finally winds around the ponds before finishing by the playground above the lakes.
