The Twilight 5K is a fun, family-friendly event on an early summer evening. Whether you run or walk, you’ll finish in daylight because it’s held on one of the longest days of the year. With a flat course and relatively few road crossings, it’s a perfect first 5K for all ages. We’ll have a party atmosphere and pizza for all afterward! The race is chip-timed by Leone Timing.
As with 2022, the race will start and finish near the marina at Allan H. Treman State Park, then follow the Waterfront Trail around the lakeshore and through part of Cass Park. See below for the layout.
The race starts and finishes at the edge of Cayuga Lake, next to the Allan Treman State Park marina. There is free parking near Treman’s dog park, with overflow parking available at Cass Park, a five-minute walk away.
