The Fine Print

We offer these Fun Runs as an opportunity to get the running community together for some fresh air, friendship, and to encourage your training for upcoming races. All ages, paces, and abilities are welcome. These are not sanctioned events and they are not “supported” at the same level as a “typical” road race – i.e., watch for traffic!  But, they are free and we hope you’ll have fun! Thanks for your participation!

This run will take place after dark. Everyone is required to bring lighting and wear reflective clothing/accessories!
