  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Awesome event!! Even though it rained it was very organized and so much fun!! The vendors were great with all the freebies
  • Did the 5K in 2019

    The race started 40 minutes late. Not good, especially since it was raining. 10k and 5k started together all in one heat.
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    Despite the weather it was a great experience. It was well organized. The music was good. Cold bottle water is a good suggestion.
