About the Safe and Healthy Summer ProjectHOOD 5K/10K Walk and Run

Event Overview:
10K EVENT-The 10K is a timed run. It is not intended for those who are looking to participate at a relaxed pace. The course for this event will consist of two laps around Washington Park. You must be able to maintain a 15 minute/mile pace or faster to participate in this event. Those looking to participate at a more relaxed pace, and/or with family and friends, please register for the 5K event.

5K EVENT - The 5K is a self-timed fun run and walk around Washington Park (one lap). It is intended for those who wish to participate in the event in a non-competitive manner. The run/walk is the perfect event for large groups, families with strollers and those who are focusing on their individual fitness goals instead of those looking to "win the race".

PEACE RALLY- The Peace Rally will begin immediately following the 5K and 10K events. For more details, please visit www.ProjectHood.org.
