We are back for the 13th Annual Downtown Greenway Run & Block Party on Saturday, October 8 from 4-8 pm at LoFi Park! Join us for the 1-mile fun run/walk/stroll or the 4-miled timed run, and stay for the after party! The route follows the completed sections of the Downtown Greenway, and the official detour route along the western side. All registered participants will receive this year’s event t-shirt, post-run refreshments, and 2 drink tickets – redeemable for beer (age 21+) or soda, juice, or water.
