Twilight 5K 2018

The Twilight 5K is a fun, family-friendly event on an early-summer evening. Whether you run or walk, you’ll finish in daylight because it’s held on one of the longest days of the year. With a flat course and relatively few road crossings, it’s a perfect first 5K for all ages. Enjoy the party atmosphere at the start/finish at the Ithaca High School track, with tunes throughout and pizza for all afterward! The race is chip-timed by Leone Timing.
