The LIVE Race will start from St. John’s Episcopal Church and run through the beautiful Dunloggin Neighborhood.  Participants can run or walk and strollers are welcome!  The Top three runners/walkers in all age categories will win a hand-carved medallion from Wamunyu, Kenya and the top male/female overall will win a hand carved medallion and runner gift cards ($100 for first place and $50 for 2nd and 3rd place).
