Part of the Parker Parks and Recreation Run Series, this sanctioned event is professionally timed (5K). The Family Fun Trek is about 1 mile of laid-back, outdoorsy fun. All participants will receive a commemorative sport headband, as well as a delicious post-race pancake breakfast and a chance to win prizes. The overall male/female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in each of the following divisions of the 5K will be awarded: 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+. All results are determined using "gun time," meaning the timing starts simultaneously for all participants in the category. The FREE Huntington Learning Center Kids' Dash follows the race for children 8 and under; no registration necessary.
