Just enough rolling hills to keep you honest! Runners competing in the 10K will run into scenic Krape Park. Course certification is pending.

The 5k and 10K runs will begin at 8 a.m.  The 1 mile Victory Lap around the Burchard Hills campus will start immediately following. We know some of our "alumni" from our Cardiopulmonary Rehab program will be making the walk. Cheer them on!
