Start Time & Staging
The start of the event will be at 8:00 am. Runners are encouraged to start making their way to the start line no later than 7:15 am.
The 5K/10K start line will be located at 1201 Main Street in front of Lululemon (next to Barnes & Noble & California Pizza Kitchen). This entire section of Main Street will be closed to vehicles and our registration volunteers will be on site to take race day registration.
The 5k course heads north on Main Street, making a right turn onto Civic Drive. You will then make a right turn onto Broadway, heading south and continuing until our turnaround point, just short of Rudgear Road. (There will be the traditional convertible Dodge Dart and Walnut Festival Signs) Make a sharp U-turn, heading back north on Broadway. Next, runners will make a left-hand turn onto Newell, then a right turn back onto Main Street, followed by either:
- 5k distance - a right onto Broadway Plaza for the finish, or
- 10k distance - continues straight on Main St. to complete a second loop.
