Inaugural Fishing Line Trail
5k Run / Walk - 2017

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Noble Trails would like to thank the participants, sponsors, and volunteers for our Inaugural Fishing Line Trail 5k Run / Walk.  With cooler weather and the rain holding off, 79 participants completed the course, enjoying the scenery and each other's company.  Ranging in ages from infants (in strollers, of course) to 90, everyone completed the course safely, with the winning time under 19 minutes.

Racers and participants are free to download any of the photos below.  We just ask that you use the photos for personal use only, and credit Noble Trails for them.
