Event details and schedule

Race day registration and packet pick up from 7:00-7:45, have photo ID please

5k will begin at 8 am. This is a good flat course, great for a PBR, or a brisk stroll. The 1 mile fun run/walk begins immediately following the 5k. Start and finish will be at Troy First Baptist Church, who has generously offered the use of their facilities to us.  There will be an Arts and Crafts event on the beautiful historic square downtown, within walking distance, featuring local vendors and pet adoptions from 8-12 so bring your wallet, and maybe a pet carrier to take a fur baby home! :)

April weather in Troy is usually a little cool in the morning, so you may want a light, easily removable long sleeve, as it typically warms up quickly.
