Assail the Trail

Please plan to join TRED for the inaugural 5K trail run and 1-mile trail walk on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at 9am at the GE Trails at Garrard Park to celebrate the 5th birthday of the GE Trails!  This unique run will benefit the GE Trails by providing funding to expand the trail system and provide maintenance to the existing trails. All runners and walkers will receive a TRED coffee mug and fun race swag and prizes will be awarded to the top 5K finishers for age groups and the top overall male and female finishers. The 1-mile walk is not timed.

The much loved Lunar Bike Ride is back with a few changes!

Jane’s Walk Rome

Jane’s Walk is an annual festival of free, community-led walking conversations inspired by Jane Jacobs, a writer, urbanist and activist who championed the voices of everyday people in neighborhood planning and city-building.
The 2-mile casual walk, led by Senior Planner Brice Wood and TRED President Harry Brock, will focus on the unseen aspects of Broad and South Broad Streets and the ways they have evolved and adapted over the decades to remain relevant and purposeful. More information.
