Walkers Welcome!

We encourage everyone to join us at the 5K for Education. If you want to walk the course, that is great! Our timing service tries to capture the time for everyone who crosses the finish line, so even if the police close the course, you should receive a finish time.
If the trailing police car passes you, you must follow the normal pedestrian rules – move to the sidewalk or side of the road.
