This inaugural run/walk will start and end at El Portal Middle School in the quiet, farming community of Escalon, CA. It's an out and back course, beginning in a residential area. The course will then follow the paved road past the orchards where almond blossoms should be in full bloom. It's a flat, fast course with few turns, so many runners may find their PR. There will be water at the 5k turnaround. This is a walker friendly race and all walkers are encouraged to come join the fun. Also, because this is a fun color run, expect to have multiple color stations throughout the course with our enthusiastic "color ambassadors" just waiting to spread their cheer!
You can pick up your race packet on the morning of the race from 6:45am until 7:45am.
