Description of the 1 mile Fun Run:
The idea behind a fun run is that is is for "fun". There is no time. It is not a competitive race. It allows someone to take part in the race day atmosphere without having to compete. Everyone gets recognition with a prize, award, or medal. A participant can feel "good" about themselves by accomplishing 1 mile.
The course will use the bike path along the Boulevard and will be an out and back.

There will be a Wilson School open house and tour available after the races. There will be raffle prizes available for all participants.
