The 5k race will start from at the Goucher College Track Complex and complete two loops of the campus before finishing back on the track. The 1 mile walk will stay on the track, where participants can enjoy music and the festival atmosphere. Strollers are welcomed for the 5k and 1 mile walk – for safety reasons all strollers must start in the back. Kids races/activities will take place on the field inside of the track.
