The Artful Dodger Run is all new this year. We have updated the 5K route and have added a brand new 10K option. Both courses start and end at a shared location so we can have an even bigger party at the finish line. Walkers are welcome to sign up for the 5K course. For those of you that enjoy the challenge of St. Clair’s hill, don’t fret, we still have a hill. The route is a peaceful path through St. Clair’s residential neighborhoods. This will not be an out and back course or a loop! Chipped time for all participants.
Our 2019 Artful Dodger is not only changing the look of the route, we are changing the looks of the race. This is not going to be an ordinary race – this is going to be a race event!
