About the 5K Run/Walk
5K • The 2020 5K is completely RENOVATED and UPGRADED! As in the past, you start and finish with the other races but now you will EXPERIENCE much more of the full and half course. After the start on Madison Street bridge, you’ll run down Fifth to Lake over to First and back into Phoenix Park. You will then take Wisconsin Street to Barstow where you will get to experience the BARSTOW BLOCK PARTY! From there you will head to State and circle back up and enjoy the Graham Avenue NEW Finish Line! The New 5K Course and the EC 9.3 Challenge really ELEVATES this event. We feel that the 5K is a significant accomplishment and wanted the participants to feel the same excitement and support of the other races and we believe we’ve accomplished this. Can’t wait to showcase the new route! #runEC
An awards ceremony will be held in Phoenix Park following the race. View last year's results.
