About This Activity

This 5K feature's a great run / walk on the Wapsi-Great Western Line Bike Trail starting at Riceville, going out past Lake Hendrick's and through the woods. The 7 mile run starts north near McIntire and is a point to point run / walk.  It is partially on an adbonded railroad bed and features a lot of shaded areas.  All registrants get free all you can eat pancakes after the run. ($4 for non 5K-registered adults and $2 for children). Stick around for the town activities all day long in Riceville!
