Kicks in the Sticks is a fundraiser and trail race. You can choose to run, walk, or just come along for the festivities. The event offers a race through the woods just before dark surrounded by a jamboree / festival /party atmosphere. You can choose among three different races: about 1.2, 3.5, or 7.5 miles. The races through the woods will be followed by live music, food, and beer. Proceeds go to The HALO Foundation & CMCA's Cole East Head Start.
