The run starts and finishes on the Vita Trail in Byrd Park just across from the Carillon. While the course is almost entirely flat, it is anything but boring! There are fun surprises along the way that will be sure to put a smile on your face. After all, it was designed by a vibrant 16-year-old!

Strollers and wheelchairs welcome!
