The 5K (3.1 miles), begins in Civic Park East where the festival will be hosted. Staging will happen on the grass under the large inflatable arch. Runners will make their way out of the park heading North on the Canal trail and ultimately turning around at Walden Park and coming back to the park. At this time of year runners can expect to see the various trees changing their colors along the course. The 5K is a flat course and runners will negotiate minimal turns, making this a fairly straight forward run.
