We welcome runners, joggers, walkers, strollers, and leashed dogs. Our 2017 route is a NEW one, starting off along our historic rearing ponds, and through pine, hardwood, and river-lined backroads — roads are paved or hard crushed gravel. All participants receive a tshirt; and prizes are awarded to the fastest female/male under 18, 18-59, and 60+ in both the 5K & 10K divisions.
