Support Youth programming with our 11th annual event! Dust off your super hero gear, get dressed and join us at Lakeside Park on Saturday, September 27 for our 11th annual Human Race 5K walk/run and Super Hero Training Course! It's the perfect time of year to enjoy a 5K walk or run through the streets of Lakeside Park on a smooth, flat course. Medals will be awarded for the top male and female adult finishers and the top male and female youth finishers (under 12). Bring your kids and set them loose on the Super Hero Training Course! Kids will have to conquer a series of challenges designed to work on their super hero skills, including aim, speed, strength, precision and more! After they complete the challenges, they will receive a FREE super hero cape, step into the magical changing booth to put their cape on, and emerge a true Super Hero! Once transformed with their capes, they will be invited to fly the super hero flight line (run the bases) and get an official super hero time! We'll have the mascots giving high fives and hugs again this year, a light lunch and entertainment! Mark your calendars and join us for this awesome, family friendly event!
