Where Run & Fun Become One



Come Run With Us!

Willow Running's mission is to offer a high quality experience that goes beyond the actual race event. While unique courses, "off the beaten path" locations and runner safety are always a priority, we also offer top notch swag and super fun post-race festivities.
