About This Activity

Run down historic Belleville Main street on the Shriners Parade route before the parade in this fun out-and-back style 5K run/walk. Parade goers set up their chairs and line the route early for the parade, so there will be a built-in energetic crowd cheering you on as you run. The 5K will begin at 721 East Main Street and head west for a mile and a half, turn around, and finish where it started. Join us after the race for food, music, and awards, and then head over and watch the Shriners Parade! There will also be several local physical therapy groups offering free stretching before and after the race.
