2023 Poker Run in Black Run Preserve

4/22/2023 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET



GET A HAND/GIVE A HAND
SECOND ANNUAL POKER RUN

Have fun, enjoy nature, win prizes, and most importantly, help FBRP accomplish its mission with your participation in this special event for runners, walkers and cyclists.
 

HOW IT WORKS:

A Poker Run is NOT a race. Participants run, walk or bike a specific route to and through the BRP. Participants stop at five checkpoints along the route to claim a playing card; assembling a five-card poker hand which will determine the order in which the donated prizes are chosen.

WHEN:
Saturday, April 22, 2023, 8:00 am - noon (Raindate: April 29th)

WHO:

Runners/Walkers or Mountain Bikers.  Minors must be accompanied by an adult. All bikers must wear a helmet. All entrants must sign a waiver. Please bring your own water bottle.

WHERE:

Starting point for all participants is at Rice Elementary School (50 Five Crown Royal) in King’s Grant. Bikers and pedestrians will have separate courses:

The biking course is approximately 9 miles. Bikers will go left out of Rice Elementary parking lot through the Links Golf Club (at 10th tee trailhead) then into the BRP and go south to the REI trails and back through the Links Golf Club.

The pedestrian course is approximately 4 miles. Runners will go right out of Rice Elementary parking lot and enter the BRP via the King’s Grant dog park/MUA access road then return on the same route.

All participants will receive a map/cue sheet.

SUPPORT:

Evesham Township Police and EMT will be on hand for traffic safety, etc.
