Trefoil Trail Run
Trek to a brand new adventure and hit the trails this fall at the beautiful POSTOAK Lodge and Retreat. Girl Scouts of all ages and their families can explore the outdoors while enjoying the crisp fall air, seeing the newly changed colors of the leaves, hearing songbirds, and maybe even seeing a deer or two.
Trail running versus the prior Thin Mint Sprint road running allows runners/walkers to be more laid back with a softer surface, encourage confidence as you navigate through a changing terrain, and soak in more time with nature. There will be two distances to choose from with a 5K or a 1K. Each distance will follow along well marked trails and will be fun for whatever walker/runner level you are currently on.
Each grade level has the opportunity to earn the Trail Adventure Badge at this event. Like other badges, one must complete five (Daisies will complete 3) steps. The five steps of the Trail Adventure Badge are (the steps will change up the higher level you are):
- Choose your adventure
- Plan and prepare
- Gather your gear
- Train for your adventure
- Go on your adventure.
The new 2019 Trail Badge requirements can be viewed in the VTK. You must be a 2020 GS member to see full details.
All Trefoil Trail Run 5K participants will receive a shirt, a 5K patch, and a box of cookies. All Tagalong Trek 1K participants will receive a shirt and a 1K patch.
