Join us for a fun, free community event!  This race is for everyone! Serious runners, walkers, joggers and parents with strollers are all welcome! You will have the option to partipate in the 5k or 1 mile distance. There will be food, photo-ops, raffle prizes and music!  


We highly recommend picking up your race packet the day before the race where you will receive your race number and t-shirt, if you chose to purchase one.  Packet pick up will be Friday August 16th from 5-7 at the pavilions on the west side of Kleiner Park near the play ground.


For those unable to attend Packet Pickup, you may pick up your race number on race morning at the pavilions on the west side of Kleiner Park.


North Records Way will be closed during the race and no one will be allowed to drive on that road as long as there are racers on the course. As a result, the parking lot on the west side of Kleiner Park will be closed. Please plan to park in the available parking at The Village. This will add a 5 minute walk, so please plan accordingly.

Online Registration is now closed.  Come before 8 am on Saturday morning to register the morning of the race if you haven't registered yet.
