This is the third year of our new course layout and our 9th year overall and we couldn’t be happier about our fun yet challenging course. This is a Certified Course will USATF and mapped out by John Steele of SRRC. Yes we have hills but you get them out of the way prior to the 2 mile mark. We have splits at Miles 1 & 2 and 2 water stops. Registration is available now online at racesonline.com/events/9th-annual-depue-celebration-5k-run-walk. If you register prior to July 19, 2019 cost is $20 after that and including race day until 7:45am cost is $25. Packet pick up will be prior to race on day of event.
