"Gun" goes off 4 pm sharp, so please arrive early enough to be ready to run from the Red Fox parking lot at 4 pm. Since this is a virtual 5k there is no check in, but we will have the GFAC Tent set up outside the store.

Park in the surrounding community lots to leave ample room for Red Fox customers to park as the store will be open for business. Here is a map of city parking options: http://www.cityoffenton.org/images/contentimages/file/downtownparkingmap.pdf
