Test yourself on January 13th and run with mean Beethoven in the 15K, the perfect middle distance race, or try the fun and fast 5K. New this Year! Beethoven's Doggy Dash 1-mile fun walk or run. This is an untimed event that starts 25 minutes before the 15K/5K start. The Doggie Dash is great for owner's to show off their best 4-legged friend and enjoy participating in the race. Whichever race you do, you'll love the picturesque race courses traveling over paved running trails, small wooden bridges and through a nature area on a 1/3 mile long elevated boardwalk . The collectible 15K finisher medals are awesome! Race shirts are long sleeved soft cotton shirts great for cool weather runners. 15K, 5K and Doggy Dashers all get this very nice soft cotton long sleeved shirt.

15K TEAMS: Form a 15K team with your running buddies and go for the 1st or 2nd place team trophy. Team times are based on the fastest four members and team members are also eligible for individual awards.

Teams must have at least 4 members to qualify for awards. Max team size is 8 runners. 


Jog strollers and racing chairs are welcome!



The Doggy Dash starts 25 minutes before the 15K/5K start so dashers can get back before the timed races start.
