5K Walk/5K Run/10K Run

Thank you for your interest in our 5K Walk, 5K Run, and 10K Run! if you wish to participate in the 5K distance, you may chose either the 5K Walk OR the 5K Run. If you participate in the WALK, you are NOT permitted to run at all as there are people competing for the fastest walker title and running is not allowed! If you would like to mix some running in with potentially some walking, please register to run; you aren't required to run the entire distance!

If you are up for a greater challenge, register to RUN in our 10K event. We do not have a separate walk for this event however you may mix running and walking if you are interested in tackling a greater distance!

The maps will allow you to better understand where the routes go but for a quick synopsis.. Here you go!

The 5K events AND the 10K Run will all start just outside of the Community Market. The 10Kers will take off first followed by the 5K runners and then the 5K walkers. We will be staggering the walkers this year as we try to cut down on congestion in tight spots where the walkers and runners will meet on the courses. All participants will run up Bridge Street toward the JTI fountain. They will take a right at the end of Bridge Street and onto the pedestrian lane of the MLK Bridge. They will take a right onto 58 West toward the airport and continue on the sidewalk. They will take another right just after the parking lot preceding the entrance to the Riverwalk Trail. The 5K and the 10K runners will both join the trail and take a RIGHT and head toward the YMCA. The turn arounds for the 5K and 10K Run will be well marked and staffed with plenty of volunteers.

The 5K run -1 mile mark is are near the sidewalk at the YMCA. The 5k run turnaround is on the river walk trail about 130 feet down river from the Pepsi truck warehouse parking lot.The 2 mile mark is 4 fence sections up river from the pad locked before the wood bridge. 

The 10k- 2 mile mark is near the old Short Sugars' building.The 10K -3 mile mark is on Exchange Street very near Trade Street. The 10K turn around is is on Trade Street if front of the Verizon Building. The 10K -4 mile mark is near the manhole in the riverwalk pavement just up the river from S&B Motors. The 10K-6 mile mark is on Bridge Street at Wilson Street.

The 5K WALKERS will follow the same path however, once they join the Riverwalk Trail, they will take a LEFT, in the direction of  Dan Daniels. It will be well marked and have plenty of volunteers as well. On the return, all participants will be exiting the trail where they entered it and will be making their way back to the Community Market the same way they went out.

The 5K walk 1 and 2 mile marks are on the trestle bridge. The turn around is under the MLK Bridge near the little green steel utility box.

Please be cautious of other runners and walkers as you may experience some congestion upon exiting the trail.

Also, please use extreme caution when running on the cobblestones on Bridge Street as we want everyone to be safe!
