2019 Construction at last year's venue gave us a new and exciting opportunity to move the race to an even better location, the Grange Audubon Center. We could not be more excited for our new Cat Caper location. This location provides ample parking and the race course will be our best yet. Participants will have a chance to connect with nature while running or walking the 5K. If you have not been to this amazing park, September 22nd is your date to go!
As with last year, in 2018 register 5 or more for the 5K and everyone in the group gets $5 off their entry! Each member of the group needs to register in the same 'cart' and the discount will automatically appear when you check-out.
