Regretfully, the 2014 Overton Park 10K Trail Race has been cancelled. Despite significant public opposition, the Overton Park Conservancy recently announced that it plans to install a sidewalk through the outer part of the forest which will require clear-cutting of trees. From the beginning, the purpose of the OP 10K has been to support efforts to preserve and protect the Old Forest. We believe that the best use of the OP 10K at this time is to help others stop the sidewalk, and to call as much attention to this threat to the forest as we can. I hope that this is just a postponement of the race, and that we can resume it in the future.
Join us for the 4th Annual Overton Park 10k Trail Race on Sunday, November 9, 2014. Race start time is 8am.
Run entirely on the park's trails and surrounding cross-country areas. Other races have briefly touched the trails. The Overton Park 10k Trail Race is all about the trails.

Come get you a gnome award!!!
The event will proceed rain or shine! However, in the event of significant rainfall leading up to the race, the course may be altered to ensure that the trails are not damaged.
