7:15 a.m. 5k The 5K race starts at 0750. We will meet before the race to join up for those who want to run together. Just look for the runners without shoes! This is the same course that they had last year, so I know it is "barefootable", but one runner ended up putting socks on in order to complete the course. There are other events in this series including a 1 mile fun run and a 1/2 marathon. Check out the link provided for more info. The 1/2 marathon starts at 0730, but the fun run doesn't start until 0945, but I would still love everyone to meet before the races and hopefully hang out some afterward.

You will get views you could only dream about and air so clean that your lungs will be shocked. This is the place to be on May 4th.
