Petting Zoo

Don't miss out your chance to see some barnyard animals at the 5K! Price is free!

 

Radar Run

Have you ever wondered what your top is when you run? Here is your chance to find out. You will have 35 yards to sprint as fast as you can and we will clock your speed using a radar gun. That's right! Radar guns can be used to determine how fast you run and not just to see if you are traveling over the speed limit.
