Spring 5K’s are a popular way to celebrate the arrival of beautiful weather and are a great way to take on a friendly competition while testing out your own endurance. You can run and walk together as a family or have your loved ones cheer you on from the sidelines! Either way, 5K’s are a fun event for everyone that attends.
Some 5K’s support great causes and donate all or portions of their proceeds, while others are just a fun time for everyone! Check out the ones happening within the next few months and see if you’re interested in signing up!
