Event Information: Franklin Park 5K

Mayor's Cup Cross Country Race

The Franklin Park 5K (3.1 miles) seeks to give local runners, especially road racers, perhaps their single cross country racing opportunity of the year. The Franklin Park 5K offers the same race course and cross country experience as the Women’s Championship 5K and Men’s Championship 8k. Also, the Franklin Park 5K has been slotted within the schedule of events to allow its participants to watch the championship competitions. Team scoring, as in the other races, will be featured in the Franklin Park 5K.
