Race Description

1/2-mile kid’s run and an approximately 3K for grown-ups.  Kid’s run is 1.5 times around the lake.  3K is once around the lake followed by a HUGE hill in beautiful Mingus Park.  You will then run on city streets, down another Mingus Park dirt trail, and finish on the paved path by the lake.  

Yep, this race used to be 3 loops around the lake but we have discovered that grownups can’t count.  To level the playing field, we’re changing the course so everyone runs the same distance.

A map of the course can be viewed here.

We have organized fireworks that evening for all participants!  


Stay after the race for a festival in Mingus Park.  Fun for the whole family!
