5 Miler Race Start
The 5 Miler Race will start at 5:10 PM on Wiley Drive. Technically, we'll start immediately after the kids' run. We strongly encourage the "big people" to be all lined up at 5:00pm so you can all make a lot of noise and cheer the little ones on. 

5K Race Start
The 5K Race will start 10-15 minutes after the 4 Mile Race. 5K participants will stand to the sides of Wiley Drive until all 4 Miler participants have cleared. 
1.25 Mile Walk Start
The 1.25 Mile Walk will also start at 5:10pm on Wiley Drive. Walkers should line up directly behind the 5K Race participants. 
Fleet Feet Sports Kids' Fun Run Start
The Kid’s Fun Run will begin at 5pm PM at Rivers Edge near the pedestrian bridge. The Fun Run is open to kids under 13 years of age.

Fleet Feet Sports Recovery Zone
Once you finish, stop by the Fleet Feet Recovery Zone to have your legs rolled out with an Addaday roller. Fleet Feet associates will be there to help!
