Join us at Piedmont Park on May 4, 2019 for the first annual Race Through Space! Start at the Sun and travel 600,000 kilometers with each step as you whiz past the planets through a scale layout of our solar system. Not up for the long haul all the way to Neptune? Just blast off on the 1.6K Fun Run to Saturn – great for kids and more casual astronauts.
The festivities include: signs, songs, and dances from local school groups at each planet marker, celebrating the science in our solar system. We’ll be making solar system bracelets, launching stomp rockets, and looking at the Sun (with a SunSpotter to stay safe!), so bring the fam and have the little ones run the one miler! All runners receive a t-shirt, a medal, and a “2.81 billion mile” sticker that will put those “26.2” slackers to shame!
