Enjoy a Cloquet Forestry Center 5k/10k Challenge for the entire month of October! Come explore scenic forest roads and soak up some fall color at the University of Minnesota's primary research and demonstration forest. The loop course includes internal dirt and grass roads closed to vehicle traffic. Runner parking is in the large paved lot at the Forestry Center. The 5k /10k routes will start and end in the same place. Please follow signs from the large paved parking lot south to the race starting area.
This summer's Cloquet Forestry Center Open House was online in collaboration with CFANS and the UMD Alumni Association. The Open House was on Wednesday, August 19th via Zoom webinar. While not the event we thought we'd offer, it was a lot of fun and brought in alums from around the country and world. View the CFC Open House recording.
