Come join your friends and neighbors for the 4th Annual Birchwood Neighborhood 5K fun run and walk! It's one of the most popular Birchwood Neighborhood events of the year! Everyone is invited to come out for this well-being and community building event. All ages, shapes, sizes, wheelchairs, four legged friends and strollers are welcome and encouraged to participate. The Birchwood 5K is not a sanctioned race, but it is truly a 5K and the perfect way to do a 5K (3.1 miles) your way! In addition, there will be a 1 mile for all ages and a kid's dash. The start and finish lines are at Birchwood Park. The 5K and 1 mile courses wind through the neighborhood with course workers watching for traffic at intersections. Gather a group to walk or run; there's always a lot of cheering and encouragement from the sidelines! There will be face painting, music, food trucks, and more! T-shirts go fast, so secure your shirt by signing up today!
