Come out and run with the chromies for a certified, chip timed 10K or 5K run/walk through the scenic Gemini Springs Park. There will also be a 1 Mile Fun Walk for those wanting to come out and enjoy the scenery with a shorter stroll. This 10K/5K walk/run & 1 Mile Fun Walk is in honor World Down Syndrome Day, which is on March 21st each year. This date is significant as it represents the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, which causes Down syndrome. Plan to stay after the race for some family fun. There will be live music, vendors, food trucks games and more.
