5TH Annual Epilepsy Association eRace 5k and 1 Mile Run/Walk and Family Day

Our Annual eRACE attracts a loyal following of runners and Epilepsy Association supporters.  The race is a family-oriented event for serious and casual competitors, along with the entire families who run and walk to support the work of the Epilepsy Association.  Proceeds benefit the programs of the Epilepsy Association, the region's community-based provider of services for children and adults with epilepsy.

In conjunction with the eRACE, our annual Family Day will have ongoing activities from 7:30 - 10:30 a.m., which will include family-friendly activities for everyone to enjoy including a balloon artist, face painting, mini pumpkin decorating, and other games and activities. Registration is included with your race entry.
