Beaver Chase Series

The Beaver Chase Running Series was founded in 1994 to give local runners a fun, affordable, weeknight event that would encourage broad participation across all ages and fitness levels. The name of the series dates back to the inaugural event when a beaver scurried out of the creek and sprinted down the trail ahead of the lead runner. As the runner crossed the footbridge over the pond, the beaver stopped and stood, watching as all the other the runners passed by. The Beaver Chase Series was born.
