Come visit the Solon Dixon Forestry Education Center on March 4, 2017 and run the 2nd annual Dixon Legend, a 5K, 10K, and ½ marathon trail run through the diverse forests of the Dixon Center's 5,000+ acres.  Pace yourself as you run dirt roads and trails through upland hardwood forests, across cool stream bottoms, or through the rolling hills of fire-maintained Longleaf Pine ecosystems.
