This 5K event is presented by Chick-fil-A Dorchester Road. The 5K event is open to the general public. Therefore, parents, family, and friends are welcome to join their race participant. You can register for the race here. We will register the program participants.
Practice will be held Monday and Thursday evenings starting at 6:15pm. As well as a few Saturday mornings starting at 8am.
