Art & Sole 5K

Saturday, August 27, 2016
Event Description: 

Take part in either a 5k run or walk (or both!) through the Arts District. There will be two different courses offered through this event. One course will be specific to those looking to run the route and the other course specific to those looking to walk the route. Both routes go through the Old Main Street District and the East River Trail. Enjoy the sites of Morty the Moose, Frida Kahlo, a Graffiti mural and various bike sculptures while exploring the Arts District. After the run take part in art activities and then make your way over to the Saturday Farmers Market to enjoy a free Great Harvest Cookie and a free local craft brew at Art Street. All proceeds will benefit the public art fund, “Art on Main,” to bring more art to the streets!
