Flanders Field & Forest Challenge


June 26 to September 22

Flanders challenges you to lace up your hiking boots.  With all summer races cancelled or postponed, this is an amazing opportunity to get outdoors, log some much-needed miles and connect with nature.   Challenge yourself, your family, and your friends to hike, run or walk area preserves!   Along the way, stop in at local community businesses to show your support!

Watch this short video for a welcome message from our Executive Director, Vince LaFontan  and for some tips on using the Actionbound App from Committee Chairs, Heather Dever and Jodi Wasserstein.
