About The Galen New Year's Resolution 5K

To help support community and educational programs, the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert is sponsoring the 2nd annual Galen New Year's Resolution 5K on Saturday December 27th, 2014. Open to walkers, runners, families and even dogs, this USATF-certified course begins and ends at the museum's The Galen building. The unique course allows participants to run along the quiet residential neighborhood that borders Edgehill Drive to the Desert Cities Baptist Church water station at the very base of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The course will then proceed back down Edgehill over a foot bridge onto Painter`s Path, rolling past the legendary Bump & Grind mountain trail, before turning back for the sprint to the finish. There will be many photo opportunities on the run and the awards ceremony will conclude the event, nestled among the most impressive outdoor sculpture exhibited in Southern California. Every mile is marked on this USATF-Certified Course.
