The 5k and 10k both start and end on the Banks High School track. They follow and out-and-back course on the Banks-Vernonia-Trail with the 10k turnaround located just north of the Hwy 26 overpass. There will be two aid stations serving water and Gatorade; the 5k passes one of them twice, the 10k passes both of them twice. The race is open to runners and walkers of all speeds, and strollers and children are welcome. Please leave your dogs at home. The kids lap (1/4 mile around the running track) is free and starts at 8:30am.
While there will be a clock running during the 5k/10k, there is no chip timing and no performance awards will be given. However, all participants are eligible to win raffle prizes, and food and drink is available after the run.
