All ages are welcome to this family-friendly event. Event is professionally timed for more serious runners. Paid online registrants for the 1K (over the age of 4) will receive a t-shirt and medal. All 5K registrants will receive a t-shirt, Mac Sport’s timing bib and a goodie bag. Games, snacks, mascots and photo opportunities galore.
