Our Saturday morning run is great way for the whole family to start your day. We are usually done with all events and awards by 9:45am so you still have time to take on whatever your day brings!

There are 5 events in which you can participate:

  • 5K Run: out-and-back, chip-timed, USATF-certified and sanctioned course
  • 1-Mile Family Walk: non-competitive run/walk out-and-back on the first 0.5miles of the 5K course
  • Itty Bitty Buddy Dash: free 50’ish yard dash for 6&under runners (t-shirt not included)
  • Virtual 5K: shirts, race numbers, and goody bags will be mailed (shipping is included in the registration fee) after the race
  • No Run Fun Run: all the perks of being a runner without actually having to run
  • .

There is a bounce house for the kids, Kona Ice will be on hand selling their snow cones, and food will be available for the whole family.
