The Saxapahaw Heron Trot is a 5k running event taking place in the beautiful village of Saxapahaw, NC. This event benefits the Hawbridge School Cross Country team.
Runners begin by crossing a large open field, and turning to parallel Moats Creek as they run along the perimeter of Saxapahaw Village Farm. After 1/4 mile, the course turns to cross the creek and loops through a large grove of pine trees. This loop is a rolling section of trail that is sure to be enjoyed by trail runners and road runners alike. Runners hit the 1-mile mark as they exit the woods, and continue their way around Saxapahaw Village Farm. The north side of the farm features a challenging hill climb where runners will have an excellent view of the surrounding area, including the iconic Saxapahaw watertower. Upon finishing their first loop, runners will pass the 2-mile mile mark. The second loop stays along the perimeter of the farm, bringing runners back to the open field for the finish.
All runners will receive a race t-shirt, and post race refreshments will be provided.
