Graham Memorial Park
Featuring a 5K road race and a 10K bike ride, this great family event will get you energized for spring.
The 5K is open to serious competitors, joggers, walkers and families. The 10K bike ride is just for fun but the scenery is great and the route meanders past the Lebanon National Cemetery.
The paved course is mainly flat but it has a lengthy incline at one portion, a small hill at the end and a portion runs through the South Lebanon Industrial Park. It is well marked and begins and ends at Graham Memorial Park.
Times are given at the 1- and 2-mile marks, two water stations will be available along the route and a small breakfast is available at the finish line. There is traffic control and the Marion County Ambulance Service follows the 5K.
Parents must accompany their children throughout the event and all bike ride participants must wear a helmet.
