Looking for the walk/run with the most unusual course in the world? You’ll discover it at Discovery Park of America.

The route meanders through a 50-acre heritage park that features a man-made river flowing through the extensively landscaped property, along with waterfalls, bridges and other water features. No place else can you dash by a 120-year-old church, an 1800s frontier settlement, a reproduction of a town from the early 19th Century and a complete vintage train station.

From dynamic race day check-in and pre-race entertainment to the dramatic inflatable archway finish line and winner’s medals, you won’t want to miss a moment.

Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m.

Winners categories include 1st Overall Male and Female 5k, 1st Overall Male and Female 10k, 1st, 2nd and 3rd for male and female in the age ranges 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 & over.

All participants receive a race t-shirt and admission to explore the museum and heritage park. For the convenience of the participants, the gift shop and Sabin’s Café will be open at 9 a.m. for breakfast and shopping.
