Race, Run or Walk the 5K
9:30 a.m. start.
The USATF certified 5K course runs along the same flat, fast route as the 10K. Take a stab at running a personal best 5K time or enjoy a more leisurely jaunt with 500+ other runners, joggers and walkers. It's the best way to start your labor day. Named in 2014 to honor the memory of longtime MDRA member Steve Williams.
Do the Double
Are you getting ready for a fall marathon? Are you looking for a bigger challenge? Challenge yourself and run the Double Header (both the 10K and 5K). It's a great marathon training session for those doing fall marathons. Awards are given for the lowest cummulative time (both races).
The Kid's Half Mile Victory Lap
10:20 a.m. start.
Our event is family friendly. Bring the kids and let them show mom and dad how it's done. The Victory Lap Kids 1/2 Mile Fun Run starts promptly after the finish of the 5k (10:15) and the course runs into the park and around the pond. All kids get a finisher's award and t-shirt. It's a great way to introduce them your healthy habit.
