Monday, MLK Day, January 15th, 2018! Gathering the diverse groups in our beloved community to celebrate Martin Luther King Day in the spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood with fellowship and fitness.

Not only will there be a post race party including music and events centered around the celebration of MLK Day, but there will also be a 5K Drumline along the race course.  About one drummer every 50 meters will give the race a unique vibe that will transform the 3.1 miles into fast parade.  Just think…drummers will keep the beat as you streak through the Park!!

Every race day participant will receive the popular MLKDay5k T-shirt along with a bag full of goodies and special offers!

Professional timing and Age group awards will be presented by Orion Racing.

Baby joggers (bumpy course) and dogs welcome.
