Don’t Miss Early Bird Registration for Audubon’s Wild 5K Run/Walk

Jamestown, NY – For runners and walkers of any age and experience, Audubon Community Nature Center’s (ACNC) Wild 5K Run/Walk is an opportunity not to be missed.

You can enjoy the natural beauty of the Audubon’s woods, fields, and ponds while helping to raise funds for the preservation and restoration of these unique habitats. Then stay after your run/walk to visit with Liberty, the Bald Eagle, and tour the exhibits throughout the Nature Center. 

While the race is held on Saturday, July 29, the other important date to remember is Monday, July 17, the deadline for Early Bird Registration.

Early Birders receive a 20% discount on their registration fee and a free event t-shirt as well.

This year’s Wild 5K is part of 2017 Chautauqua Striders/UPMC Chautauqua WCA Runner of the Year Series for which participating runners will receive points.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three overall male and female walker and runner finishers. Age group awards will be given to the top three finishers in each division for runners and top finisher in each division for walkers. 

Race day schedule is 8-8:45 a.m. registration, race at 9 a.m., and award ceremony begins at 10:30 a.m.

Early bird registration is $20. After July 17, registration is $25. A special discount of 10% will be extended to members of ACNC and Chautauqua Striders Athletic Club, prices $18 and $22.50 respectively.
