Event Navigation

This is an age and gender graded 5K run in which the older you are the bigger lead you get and if you are a female you get an even bigger lead over the guys. Run on a flat bike path out and back so you get to see your lead over the faster open men who start last. Medals to the top 50!

We look forward to seeing all the different “Grandma Costumes” to be worn by as many of the brave runners that dare to…its a fun run to watch even if your not running…each year the fake Grandmas hope to run down the Real Grandmas due to the handicap head start lead that all women and older Grandpas get…See You at the start line which will be a little bit down from the zoo on Butterworth street at the corner of Butterworth and O’Brien streets….the first runner leaves the starting line at 9 a.m.!
