The race route for the 5K run/walk is on the Sixteen Mile Creek Trail so includes hills, stairs and the trail itself is uneven. It is therefore not suitable for strollers and very young children. Dogs are also not permitted on the race route but can be kept on leash in the picnic area. 

The start line will be near the Children’s Play Area, past the parking lot at the end of Lions Valley Park Road. Participants must be at the starting line 15 minutes before the race starts:
