Lace-up your shoes and join us for our first annual Full S.T.E.A.M Ahead 5K! Families, friends, and individuals of all ages are invited to race, run or walk for S.T.E.A.M. education. The proposed course will start and end by the Science Center front plaza next to Rosie the T-rex and will weave through the scenic layers within Dreher Park. Click here for the course map. Net proceeds from this race support the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math education programming at the Science Center.
After the event, participants are encouraged to head over to the Science Center for half-off regular admission when they show their bib. This offer is valid for the entire month of January!
For the safety of all, please follow the directions of the parking attendants. Parking is available in the main Science Center lot until about 6:30 AM. Additional parking is available across Summit Blvd. to the South end of Dreher Park in lots A, B, & C. Allow 15-20 minutes to walk from outer lots to still arrive at check-in by 7:00AM. All parking is free.
Timing - This race is chip-timed. Your bib will have an electronic chip that starts your timer when you pass the starting line. We do ask that walkers and slower runners stage a little farther back in the pack to allow competitive runners a clear path at the start. Due to insurance considerations - no strollers, skateboards, bicycles, wagons, or pets allowed on the course.
