There will be a 10K, 5K, and 2K, so everyone can get involved in the race.
All participants must bring their own water; none will be provided other than the water in the fountains around the school. Parents must attend if there child is 12 or under. Parents may volunteer to help out or just walk around the track. Workouts are geared toward the age or skill level of the athlete.
