There is a turn-around at the end 159th and near the end of Glen Acres.  You will be rewarded with some fantasic water views on the 10K course!

Some people run hoping to beat their personal best time or their best friend. Others walk and talk , and stop for tea along the way. The 10K and 5K runs are sanctioned by USATF . Chip timing is conducted by Budu Racing. Click HERE to view last year's results. (Please note that the 5K walk is not an official race and prizes are not awarded).
