Remember our course does have sections of uneven ground and some gravel. Strollers are welcome but should be aware of the course conditions.

5K Note:

The 5K is for both runners and walkers. However, it is expected that any participant in the 5k should be able to accomplish the necessary 3.1 miles in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. (23 to 25 minute pace per mile).
