The 1K fun run will be an untimed event for children who are not ready for the full 3.1 miles of the 5K. It will begin at 8:00 a.m. with the 5K beginning at 8:15. Parents may run the 1K with their children. A couch to 5K program will begin near the start of the school year for adults who have no running experience but want to run in the 5K. This is a great way to fall into fitness. The couch to 5K program will be free for any registered runners.
