This annual family-friendly event begins and ends in Marmion Park in the 1800 block of Heights Boulevard, and includes a 5K Run, a 5K Walk and a Kids 1K race. We’re also bringing back the 10K race, added last year!
The USA Track & Field certified course along scenic Heights Boulevard, will provide a run with a view. Individual 5K and 10K runners’ timing will be tracked with disposable timing chips and conducted by Run Wild Sports Timing. The Kids 1K race will not be timed, nor will walkers.

After 8:00 AM, everyone is invited to the After-Race Party in the Park (always a good time!) which will include entertainment, door prizes, refreshments, and more. Awards will be presented starting around 9:00 to the top three males and females in 13 age groups, with all Kids Run participants receiving a medal at the finish line.
