    Hi Craig, I am planning to run 5K.

    October 28

    • Craig

      Great! If we have several people running 5K and 10K distances, we can most likely run part of the course together, assuming all of the runners start at the same time...

      Yes, let us wait for others to respond!!!

    This sounds like a great event, and I'm looking forward to attending on Saturday! With that said, can someone please tell me who in our group is planning to "run" in this event vs. "walk"? I'm a runner, personally, and have signed up for the 10K, and I'd like to connect with other runners who are participating. Thanks!
