Face the Forest 5K Obstacle Course Run

August 21 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Test your mettle on a run through the hills, dales and woodlands of Poplar Forest plantation. Join the Jamerson YMCA and Poplar Forest for the annual Face the Forest 5K Obstacle Course Run and take on the obstacles—climbing walls, balancing teeter-totters, flipping tires and trenching through mud—placed along the way. The competition is open to families and teams of all ages. Face the Forest entry fees support children’s educational programming at Poplar Forest and the Y’s annual campaign, which provides outreach, financial assistance, youth and family programming and many other resources within the community. Registration fees and race details available by July 1.

Please note: All visitors are required to maintain social distancing protocols and wear masks while on tours and in public buildings. Due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 protocols, all dates are subject to change; please visit to confirm the date and time of an event.
