About This Activity

Join us for this great family event. There will be a 5k race with chip timing on a certified course. We will also have a one mile Fun Run/Walk and a Toddler Trot for the little runners. All participants in the one mile event receive medals. After the race enjoy the great refreshments: fruit, cookies, salty snacks and tasty homemade baked goods. After the award ceremony we will have a drawing for prizes. Child care will be provided while parents run the 5k. The race will be held, rain or shine. No refunds. Profits from the event go for scholarships and various awards for students in Orange County Schools.
