About This Activity

Come support our community with your family and friends at the 5th Annual Outpacing Melanoma 5K Run/Walk & Dot to Dot Kid Trot on Sunday, May 1st, at 8 a.m. in the prestigious setting of Corporate Woods Office Park.

The 5K course is USATF certified, and custom medals are awarded to the top three finishers in each age division. Plaques are given to the Overall male and female and Overall Masters male and female.

The Kid Trot is for children ages 10 and under. Each participant receives a ribbon, goody bag and t-shirt. Children’s entertainment will include a balloon artist and the Pink Starlets from Shear Madness.

Guest speakers will shed light and hope on melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) while participants are invited to enjoy post race refreshments. Strollers and dogs (on a leash) are welcome too!
