Race Day Instructions
Did you know that the average American consumes 4,500 calories on turkey day? Join us for a fun-filled 5K on turkey day to help you burn off some of those calories before your tryptophan induced nap. This is a fun and beautiful course through the Boerner Botanical Gardens. Whether you're a super fast runner looking for a new PR, or you just want to get out and walk with the family, this course is for you! Remember, kids can race our Kiddo's 1K race for free, so be sure to bring the whole family.
