Calling all runners and walkers! The Roosevelt Run is back and we hope you will be too!

Roosevelt Run - 5k Run/Walk: Run or walk a measured, timed course through Arthurdale’s beautiful historic district that is still dotted with original homestead houses. Make sure to wear your best 1930’s garb like aprons, hats, and ties to fit with the antique cars parked in the driveways! Also, you’ll want to be dressed appropriately to meet Eleanor Roosevelt and wander the living history museums after the race.

Fala’s Flee – 1 mile Kid’s Run: For those 10 years of age and younger, this 1 mile, untimed course will start shortly after the 5k. Everyone is a winner! Participants must be 10 years of age and under.

Pre-registration - by 7/19/2015: $20 (includes race t-shirt!)
Registration – after 7/19: $25
Fala’s Flee: $3
