About This Activity

Start you Labor Day morning with a

Flat & Fast 5K race/run/walk. 

We'll be starting at 9:00 am at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church. This is a flat certified course.  We'll have chip timing, custom awards (hand made in Honduras) for the overall M/F, master's overall M/F, and the top 3 in all the usual 5 year age groups (10 & Under - 75+).  For those younger folks that don't want to do the 5K and are 5 years & younger, we have a Tot Trot.
