Have you ever jogged through the Plantations and wondered where you were or what you were looking at? Now you can see our gorges, gardens and green spaces like you’ve never experienced them before: on a guided running tour. Come for any or all of these noon-time outings, offered on alternating Fridays. Plantations staff will lead you through some of the gorgeous spots you may have seen before, plus a few you may have missed on past visits. Don't worry if you aren't a sprinter or marathon runner; the pace will be a moderate jog, with several stops along the way to interpret the plants and landscapes, or just admire the view from one of several scenic overlooks. Participants should be in good physical condition, wear appropriate running shoes and attire, and bring a water bottle. (A water refill stop will also be made along the way.)

Instructors: Billy Kepner and Sarah Fiorello, Plantations staff
Fee: Free and open to all members of the Ithaca and Cornell communities
Location: Meet at the garden overlook on Tower Road, across from the old Dairy Bar. (Metered parking is available at the Nevin Welcome Center and Peterson Lot, corner of Judd Falls and Tower Roads.)
