Starry Night 8.5K
Take this opportunity to test yourself! If you're comfortable with a 5K, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's 8.5K run/walk is the perfect chance to increase your distance. If you're a 10K regular, use this event to check out your speed.
A two loop road race, the route caters to both walkers and runners. Runners complete the full distance, while walkers follow the same course once.
The specific 8.5K distance is approximately 28,000 steps, which is close to the number of children living with a brain tumor. Fundraisers who raise more than $100 will be invited to take part in a lantern lighting ceremony after the race.
