It has become a great community and family event.

Assisted Participants:
We are pleased to provide an opportunity for assisted participants to enjoy race day. An assisted participant is typically being pushed in a stroller "appropriate" for the event (ie..hand brake, tether, appropriate wheels). Both the participant being pushed and the pusher are required to register for this event. Assisted participants will start prior to the 10K start and be ranked separately from the 10k event. Both the pusher and assisted participant should indicate this classification during the registration process for our planning purposes.


The event begins at Riverfront Park just past Depot Grille, goes up 9th Street, turns right on Jefferson Street beside Amazement Square, and proceeds to the Blackwater Bikeway Trail. Once there, stay on the trail and go through the tunnel. When you get to the junction of the four trails, take the Ed Page trail, cross over Blackwater Creek on the foot bridge, and continue on the Ed Page trail to 238 feet past the 0.25 mile marker. Then, turn around, come back down the Ed Page trail to the trail on the right to go back through the tunnel, back to 9th Street, and finally to Depot Grille.


In-person, 10K results will be available on and following the event. Participants can also sign-up for text and email notification during registration.
Please Note:  The 2 MILE WALK is not a timed event.  There are no age group awards or ranking of 2 Mile Walk participants.
