Under the Moon 5K Series
Run in the park after dark this summer.
Experience your Metroparks under the light of the moon. Run or walk the 5k course after dark. Toledo Roadrunners place glow sticks lining the routes marking your safe passage through the night woods. Decorate yourself with glow attire! Just-for-fun – no official timing or scoring, so go at your own pace.
Everyone starts together at the scheduled time; for safety reasons, no late starts allowed.
