ASCA's 5K is a race for all ages and fitness levels! Regular runners and first-timers alike are welcome to join us for the 5K Fun Run/Walk. Whether you’re trying to beat your personal best or walking with friends and co-workers, this is a great way burn some extra calories during the Annual Meeting.

This event is a fun opportunity to soak in the beautiful landscape around the Gaylord property–and a terrific way to get your body moving and energized for the rest of the day. Runners will traverse a course of 3.1 miles and walkers more than 1 mile. Breakfast will be available before the Friday's general session.

Whether you run along the 3.1-mile course or opt for the 1-mile walking path, you're sure to make every step count when wearing your ASCA 2016 Pedometer. Staying hydrated is easy with water refilling stations along the route; don’t forget your ASCA 2016 reusable water bottle! All race participants will also receive a wellness T-shirt!


While everyone wins at ASCA’s 5K, prizes will be awarded to the three fastest women and men.
