Word on the Street offers hybrid options!
Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to keep our community safe and healthy, Word on the Street 5K Run/Walk will offer both in-person and virtual event options for 2021. If restrictions on race day do not allow an in-person event, all participants registered for in-person may choose to transfer to the virtual event, defer their registration fee to 2022, or request a refund.
Kids’ Run will return in 2022. Check the library website for other fun activities for children.


How will the in-person event remain safe?

Packet pick-up stations will be spread out to allow social distancing. Contactless pick up available on April 30.

Open start allows participants to choose their start time between 8 am and noon. Participants will remain in their vehicles in the library parking lot until the start area is clear.

Revised course eliminates busy traffic crossing. Course will be marked with route arrows. No course marshals will be present. Maps for trail run or stroller-friendly paved route will be published when finalized.
