About This Activity

ART MOVES Midtown 5K & Minnie's Mile Fun Run starts and finishes at the Cameron Art Museum (CAM). The 5K course travels along the Gary Schell Cross-city Trail, around Halyburton Park and ends at the CAM’s Pyramid Park with runners moving through Forks Historical Site and finishing under the Mel Chin Sculpture “The Structure of Things Given and Held” - truly an inspiring race experience!


Local artisan produced custom FINISHER MEDALS for 5K'ers and 1-mile'ers!! Always wanted some bling but don't do distance? Here's your chance. These medallions will be awesome!


The Minnie's Mile Fun Run is great for kids of all ages. Jog strollers and special needs participants are cordially welcome in Minnie's Mile! Post race there are activites for kids and an award ceremony with adult beverages, good food and prize drawings held on the grounds of the CAM, or inside if the weather requires it.


Take this opportunity to see the Cameron Art Museum (CAM) and race on a beautiful race course, or enjoy the Minnie Mile Fun Run with the kids. The Minnie mile honors Minnie Evans, one of the most famous artists in the history of Wilmington.


All proceeds go to the Cameron Art Museum to support the CAM's inclusive programing and ArtReach.
