Support Our Mission

Donate Today for Tomorrow's Trails


Fort Wayne Trails’ mission is to act as a community partner and advocate in the development of a connected, multi-purpose system of trails in Allen County which is now 120+ miles.

Our trails connect isolated areas with community destinations, address safety issues, improve societal health, create equitable transportation options, increase environmental quality, and enhance the type of quality of life amenities that attract talent, business, and economic growth.

Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll Update: To ensure that we can provide a safe and fun event we have made the decision to cap our registration and eliminate day-of registrations. We have a hand full of spaces left and once they are full we will be closing registration. The virtual options will be left open and are a great way to help support the event and Fort Wayne Trails. The virtual events are casual and you are not required to submit a time unless you would like to. We are sorry to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this decision and hope that you understand the reason behind our choice. Thank you for supporting Fort Wayne Trails!

 

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
