Come out and run with the chromies for a certified, chip timed 10K or 5K run/walk through the scenic Gemini Springs Park. There will also be a 1 Mile Fun Walk for those wanting to come out and enjoy the scenery with a shorter stroll. This 10K/5K walk/run & 1 Mile Fun Walk is in honor World Down Syndrome Day, which is on March 21st each year. This date is significant as it represents the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, which causes Down syndrome. Plan to stay after the 5K/1 Mile Fun Walk and bring the family to the Spring Festival. Admission to the festival is free and each 10K & 5K participant will receive a $5 coupon off a wristband. This year we are excited for the addition of live music at the Spring Festival which is included in the Free Admission, so plan to bring the whole family and stay for some fun at the festival.
