The Leander Outrun the Sun 5K takes place in the beautiful Lakewood Park. This chip timed event starts in heart of Lakewood park and wraps through the sculpture garden (5k will require 2.5 laps). The 5k course does go off road and has uneven terrain and some rough surfaces.  If that is not for you, simply stay on the great lawn course with our fun run that is a flat level surface.  See how many laps you can make before the total eclipse. The great lawn course is flat with no hills or rough terrain. This event will have VERY limited participation, so sign up early to ensure you can join us for this exciting event.  All racers 5k or fun run will need a registration.
