The Jim-Ree 5K Walk / Run encompasses the museum with the course gently undulating throughout much of the route. It winds past the Historic Granite Bowl, through Sutton Park, and onto the Westside Community. From the Westside Community to the four-lane, the course veers through the parking lot behind the courthouse and then onto the Historic Square to the Historic Heard Street.  ­­­­The route loops back to the museum via Church Hill Road to Church Street. Back at the museum, refreshments await you along with an award that you may have earned. If you would like, hang around or come back for our Health Fair from 9 AM to 1 PM.
