We are excited to announce our Spring 5K will take place Saturday May 9, 2015 at 8am. This race is open to the community, and all runners, walkers, ages and levels are WELCOME! Please join us for a fast, flat race course followed by fun festivities! DJ Steve Sills will provide the race tunes needed for you to get pumped up and ready to RUN. He will lead an optional group warm up at 7:30am in the field at Veterans Park. There will be a special start for community racers, followed immediately by the Girls on the Run program participant start.
This race is chip timed for you to race your first or your fastest 5K!
The sweaty smiles of joy from over 250 girls finishing their first 5K beside you, will make it a special 5K for all who participate. After the race, there will be delicious snacks and carbs, more music, and fun kids activities include bracelet making, picture frame decorating, line dancing, Zumba and more. Whether it is your first race, or your fastest, plan to stay and celebrate the 5K
