Advance Labor Day Picnic 5K and Fun Run

Introducing a new event to the celebration.

The Advance Labor Day Picnic is a hometown tradition that is celebrated throughout the entire Labor Day weekend. And this year we are excited to announce that we are adding a 5k run/walk and 3/4 mile Fun Run to the festivities.


5K The 5K race course is flat and fast. Perfect for setting a record or a personal best! This course is USATF certified for USATF and State records. But you don't have to be fast to participate. The 5K is a run or walk.

The race course begins and ends in Westfield Park. The race course leaves Westfield Park on W. Masters Street. A left turn onto Tilly Street, then three short blocks to another left turn onto Old C Highway. Down Old C Highway to the turn around, and follow the same route back to Westfield Park. The last half mile is on the paved running trail in Westfield park, providing a great venue for spectators to cheer on the runners.

Fun Run The Fun Run is held completely within Westfield Park, following the 5K. It will utilize the paved running trail, starting and ending at the 5K finish line.
