The race is suitable for all ages and levels of runners/walkers as well as dogs on leashes. There is plenty of free parking in Old Town, and participants and spectators are also encouraged to ride bikes to the event.

Morning and not a chance.  It would be hard enough for me to walk 5K let alone run it.
