About This Activity

Join us on Saturday May 14th for a fun event for the whole family!

This scenic out and back 5k course travels down beautiful Reservoir Road. The mixed pavement, hard packed dirt course is hilly, but the serene setting makes for a low-stress, enjoyable run! The 5k is open to children 12 and older.

 The kids race is meant to be fun and manageable for all ages. It is a half-mile out and back course on Reservoir Road. We will be celebrating our community and empowering the children to have fun, spend time outdoors and support each other. Children 11 and under are invited to participate in this run.
