“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao-Tzu
We’re back!! After such a phenomenal turnout our inaugural year, we are so excited to bring you our 2nd Annual Ants in your Pants 5k & kids k! We’ve got an awesome new route that you’re going to love! It’s paved and winds along Gilleland Creek amongst the trees, which provide great shade, and there’s no big hills – yay! We’re ready for your fast feet to trod upon it!
We are planning even bigger festivities for the whole family to enjoy at the start/finish line, conveniently located at Bohl’s Park. It’s going to be awesome — you don’t want to miss out! We also have the option for you to choose to receive a tech (dri-fit) tee or a cotton t-shirt for your race shirt. Stay tuned for more exciting details as race day approaches….
