         The 1 mile Fun Run is open to all participants, and all registered participants who complete the course will receive a ribbon. All who go through the chute will have their times recorded.

         Timed by River to River Roadrunners.

         The 5k run/walk is a certified course. 5k walkers will be strictly monitored for adherence to walking.
