shepherd lake 5k

The race begins in front of the 74-acre lake and continues through the parks into Skylands Manor Botanical Gardens. The race course goes past the manor house originally built in the 1920s. May is a wonderful time of year to take advantage of the spectacular elegance of the gardens and haven of the woods.

All money raised by REF for this event is used in our mission to enhance and enrich the public educational experience of our Ringwood students.
