The event features a course that is three times a one-mile loop with slight inclines taking you past the Upper Meadow, the Rose Garden, the Cactus Garden, the Rare Fruit Orchard, through the impressive Banyan Grove and back to the finish line.
The family-friendly run/walk also features a wonderful Children's Festival filled with activities for children of all ages. Race registration before July 9th, 2016 includes a t-shirt and goody bag.
