The scenic 5K (3.1-mile) course follows gently rolling terrain through residential areas, beginning at Evergreen Middle School and ending with a festive finish line at Nick’s Pro Fitness. Runners will start at 8 a.m., followed by walkers. In the interest of safety and fairness to competitive runners, strollers and leashed dogs will only be allowed at the back of the walk.
Race participants and their families and friends are invited to join the finish-line festivities at Nick’s Pro Fitness. Enjoy refreshments, music, prizes, and lots of clean mountain air!
