This rolling 5K (3.1 mile) course starts with a clockwise trip through beautiful Walnut Hill Park that travels by the buzzing pre & post event festivities. The course then exits the park and tours the quaint neighborhoods and historic homes of the Walnut Hill Historic District. It then finishes retracing its steps by making a counterclockwise trip back through the park before an exciting finish lined with spectators!
