About the Event
Saturday, May 5, 2018

The race will be held RAIN OR SHINE!

The 5k Run/Walk will be a chip timed race with awards for the top 3 in each age group. The race starts at 8am, and the course takes place along neighborhood roads. There will be a water station at the half way point. Baby strollers are allowed but please start near the back of the corral to avoid obstructing other runners.

The "Story of the Thirsty" Water Walk will be an interactive event for the whole family. Enjoy a fun morning out as you learn what it means to walk with those in need of clean water. This event is FREE but you do need to register. Donations are appreciated. 

Please note that only children under the age of 14 need to be registered for the water walk and not adults accompanying them. There will be no mass start for the water walk. Participants are welcome to start anytime between 8:15 and 9:30am.
