Join us for a fun and frendly competition!  Over 100 older adults, including many who are over 80 years old, will be racing in the Seniors Running and Walking Festival.

This festival is a celebration of older adults' abilities, health, well-being, and their contributions to our community.  Participants will enjoy refreshments, live music, and cake.  The race entry fee is just $10 and includes a t-shirt, finisher's medal and the chance to win one of the many age-group awards.
