St. Charles County, Missouri – Wild in the Woods is back with double the fun this year! Bring your trail shoes and your mountain bikes to run, ride, or both through St. Charles County's most scenic parks during the Wild in the Woods Trail Run/Mountain Bike races Sept. 27, Oct. 18 and Nov. 1. Now you can tackle the rugged terrain on foot, cover the miles on two wheels or, if you're feeling really wild, challenge yourself to both events in one day! Get Wild in the Woods this fall with the St. Charles County Parks Department, Thrivent Financial Representative Kelly Floyd, FLEET FEET Sports, Swim Bike Run, Vaccaro’s Produce and Great Harvest Bread Company!
