This is a race for everyone – all the way from serious runners to walkers. Mark April 2, 2022, on your calendar.

You can pick up your race packet there as well as see what is new in the running/walking world that the vendors and sponsors will be displaying. On race day, Marion Square is the place to be for the Finish Festival from 8:00 am until noon for entertainment, vendors, and refreshments.
