We will be featuring Colony Grill Hot Oil pizza truck, the Taco Loco truck, Sierra Nevada Beer, and much more that will be included in our awesome buffet. Since the run and walk will finish just around dinner time, this is a great way to bring family and friends to watch, volunteer or just enjoy a post event meal together. REMEMBER- paid participants in the 5k run or one mile walk are already included in the dinner.

YES, WE ARE RUNNING AND WALKING IN ANY WEATHER unless it is lightning- then we will delay it until the police say OK. Please don't email unless it is an emergency - in which case you should be dialing 9-1-1 & not emailing a race director! We can't postpone to another date and we can't refund. But WE CAN HAVE FUN and enjoy the food trucks, adult hydration, and over 1000 friends who understand that weather reports are wrong more than half the time!
