Join Tennessee State Parks as we celebrate World Bee Day on May 20th by doing a virtual 5K! A portion of the proceeds from this virtual 5K will benefit our Tennessee State Park Honey Project, which helps establish honey bee hives in state parks across the state. Check out the Honey Project at this link for more information, https://tnstateparks.com/honey-project. This event is open to all skill levels who like to run, walk, or a combination of both!
The race kicks off when you are ready to go any day between May 17th and May 23rd, either on a treadmill around your neighborhood, or any course you choose. You can log your time at any point during the week. We encourage everyone to complete your miles on May 20th in spirit of celebrating World Bee Day!
Register any time between now to May 23rd. We encourage all runners to register before May 15th to be guaranteed a finisher medal.
