Walkers can choose from a paved trail that circles the athletic fields at SIA or a nature walk throught SIA's wooded trails.

Following the walk/run, participants and volunteers are invited to enjoy fantastic, FREE food and live entertainement in the SIA Pavilion.  In addition, medals will be awarded to every 5K Run participant with special medals for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female runners.

It is always advisable to consult your doctor before starting a new exercise regime, including walking or running.  All participants will be required to sign a liabiltiy waiver before the walk/run.  Participants under the age of 18 must also have a parent/legal guardian sign the liability waiver.
