The 5k Race is sanctioned & certified by the USA Track & Field (certification code NY-10067-JG). The course is moderately challenging with several rolling hills meandering through Greenlawn, starting and ending at the Elwood Middle School. The race has computerized chip timing and scoring provided by Just Finish, Inc.
The 1 mile Fun Run is for all ages and takes place at the Elwood Middle School track. The goal is to run 4 laps around which is 1 mile... but really, the goal is to have FUN and do as many laps as you can! It's all to support a great cause - the students of Elwood. All Fun Run participants get a T shirt and prize just for participating, and those who complete the 4 laps/mile get a medal.
