Walk or Run?   Walk or Run?

Walkers and runners of all ages and athletic abilities can participate in the 5K Walk/Run.  Run or walk in shady William Land Park (registration area is across from Sacramento Zoo) and enjoy the live entertainment along the racecourse.  For those that want to know their time, they can be B-tagged.   The Bib Tag Timing system includes a disposable timing chip attached to the bib number. As runners cross the finish line, a chip in the bib number will record their time.


What will I find there? 

1)  Registration, packet pick-up, located near Sacramento Zoo.  A booth for runners to pick up their socks - exclusively designed by Trumpette.  2)  Amphitheatre Stage with announcements and continuous entertainment - with plenty of seating to relax and enjoy.  3)  Over 46 hands-on, interactive booths.  4)  Performers along  the racecourse and throughout the event.  5)  Food sampling and  food trucks.  6)  To add to the festive atmosphere and promote their organization or school, some runners run in costume.  Most of all, you will find that Race for the Arts is more than a run, it's an experience!
