GLOW WALK DETAILS:  The walk consists of portions of a gravel path and paved trail surface within Ridge Ferry Park. The distance is approximately 1.7 miles and will not be timed. Dogs on a leash are allowed during the walk, but walkers must clean up after their pet. 

5K RUN DETAILS: The run consists of limited portions of gravel path as well as paved trails within Ridge Ferry Park. The course is flat and very fast with only one true hill. Due to limited trail width, we ask anyone wanting to use a baby jogger to start at the back of the running pack. While we love our four-legged friends, dogs are not allowed to participate in the 5K race.

STARTING LINE: The starting area will be marked to help with social-distancing, and there will be several trash cans to allow runners or walkers to toss disposable masks before they start if they would prefer not to wear them.
