The annual Garlic Festival has a parade, live music, and garlic-themed food and craft vendors to explore following our half marathon, 10K, and 5K events. Experience the rural beauty of the North Plains as you run on quiet farm roads. NOTE: half marathon starts at 7am. (10K starts at 8 am; 5K at 8:15 am). Note that there is a 3 hour time limit for the half marathon due to other events at the Garlic Festival. If you don't expect to finish by 10am we strongly encourage you to sign up for the 10K event.
