Every year the Friends work diligently with the staff at McCormick’s Creek State Park to host annual events that people have come to know and love. The Friends contribute by providing volunteers, financial assistance, and planning. Some of these events are:

  • First-Day Hike and Photo Contest
  • Spring 5k Road Race
  • Wildflower Weekend
  • Arts, Blues, and BBQ Festival
  • Fall Trail Run to the Creek 10k/5k
  • Fall-O-Ween

Spring 5K and Fall Trail 10k/5k

The Friends host two running/walking races each year:

-Spring 5k Road Race

-Fall 5k/10k Run to the Creek trail run

These races are very popular and generate the majority of the Friends funding for the year.

Volunteers are always needed to help with both races! To volunteer, email Laura at:
