Grab your running shoes and join us on Saturday, July 27th for a unique fundraiser run for Civic Park. Not your standard 5k, this run will take place on the one-mile Rexius Trail loop along Amazon Parkway. The run will begin with entrants completing a lap of the course in 15 minutes or less. With each successive round, runners will have to meet shorter and shorter time goals to qualify for the next round.
Runners can complete each round as fast or slow as they like, as long as they finish it within the goal time. For example, if runners have 15 minutes to complete the first one-mile lap, they may choose to use the lap as a warm-up and walk it in 15 minutes or less, or they could run the lap and complete it faster, giving themselves more time to recover before the second round. The winner must outlast all other entrants to complete the fastest course lap!
Date: Saturday July 27, 2019
