Course

The event features a 5K and Family Fun Run (approximately 1-Mile) starting and finishing at the grandstand of the hallowed Springdale Race Course.

The Springdale Race Course hosts two of the most important steeplechases on the yearly calendar – the extremely popular Carolina Cup in the spring and the prestigious Colonial Cup in the autumn.  The grounds of the race course are also home to the National Steeplechase Museum.

The race presents a unique opportunity for you to see the homestretch of the track as a thoroughbred steeplechase race horse does.  The NEW course for 2014 will be a more friendly route starting behind grandstands, running a gravel road for almost a mile to pavement and finishing approximately the last half mile on grass in front of grandstand.

Participants are invited to include the whole family or to bring their dogs along for the 5k or Family Fun Run. Spectators can bring their chairs or watch the start/finish from the grandstand.  Tailgating is encouraged and parking will be available next to the grandstand.

Join us at this fun, family-friendly event!
