ABOUT THE EVENT
Join us again, or for the first time, for this summer’s Red Dress Run. On Saturday, July 8, we will take to Elizabeth Park for this annual 5K event. We are offering a Couch to 5K program for those that are willing to make the Red Dress Run their first 5K. The Red Dress Run is a 5K run/walk exclusively for women of all ages & abilities to celebrate women’s fitness. The 3.1 mile route starts and finishes in the beautiful Elizabeth Park Rose Garden (with over 15,000 roses in full bloom!) and travels through shade covered residential streets on wide, well paved roads.
