Join the Young Friends of the Garden for the annual Garden Gallop: Wellness in Motion Fun Run presented by Graybar.

Participants can run or walk from two routes (approximately 5 kilometers or approximately 1 mile long) through the Garden’s spring blooms. Post-run, participants can enjoy on-site yoga with Brick City Yoga, a hands-on wellness activity with the Garden’s therapeutic horticulture, and a light breakfast provided by Kaldi's Coffee.

Event registration includes a commemorative t-shirt. Registration must be completed by April 8 to guarantee the requested shirt size.

Garden Gallop proceeds benefit the Garden’s Outdoor Youth Corps education and workforce development program.

Due to the narrowness of our paths, only event participants will be allowed on the Garden grounds during this event. Strollers are welcome, children two and under are free of charge.

Garden Gallop is a rain-or-shine event. In the event of severe weather, the start time may be delayed, or Garden Gallop may be canceled.
