The 5K Run/Walk is a timed event with finisher medals (top 3 male and female finishers in these categories: 29 and under, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+). There will be open start times, meaning the race does not start as a group. Your chip time starts when you start the race. 

The USA Track & Field certified 5K course begins and ends on Faber Street near Baldwin Heights Elementary School, travels through Tower Park, past historic Manoka Lake, around Baldwin Lake, past scenic views of Taylor Hops, and concludes with a gradual hill up Marvel Drive.
