Run through an outdoor art museum!

You can run or walk amidst 15 different works of art including sculptures, murals, and horticulture along the scenic Bushkill Creek. Join us for your first 5K, to try to set a new personal record, or to check out the art. This first-time event is walker-friendly, stroller-friendly, and dog-friendly.
