5K starts at 9:30 am
The 5K starts at E Lynn St & 25th Ave E, not far from Fuel Coffee Shop. It will make a loop through the scenic Washington Park Arboretum. Course will use the new Arboretum loop trail, and can be found on the race website. Walkers and strollers welcome.
Kids Run begins at 10:30 am
The Kids run will start at the same place as the 5K. We will start first with kids ages 2-4. They will run an abbreviated course, which will be one loop through the Pinetum (0.6 miles). At 10:40, kids 5-7 will start followed at 10:50 by kids 8-12. All kids over 5 will race on the 1-mile course which will take them over the Wilcox bridge onto a small section of the new loop trail and then back around through the Pinetum. All routes can be found on the race registration site.

- Race will be timed by Rivalry Events
- Bib and t-shirts can be picked up on Wednesday, Nov 22nd, from 10AM-6PM at Glam & Tonics as well as on race day starting at 8AM

New this year: We will be having a raffle for great prizes from our sponsors, which include $50 gift certificates and lasagna dinner for 10 from Cafe Lago.

Donations can be made through the race site link and you can donate even if you aren’t signing up to run. Raffle winners will be announced at 9:25 on race day. No need to be present to win.
