West End 4K
West End 4K is Tomorrow

Thursday, July 28 | Race day packet pick-up begins at 5PM | Pearl Street West End

The popular West End 4K takes place TOMORROW. The course is great for spectators since it takes two loops up and down Pearl Street (between 3rd and 11th streets). In addition to the vendors giving away goodies, there are plenty of options for food and drink in the West Pearl neighborhood! The popular Corporate Challenge is part of the West End 4k again this year. Gather your colleagues! Teams can include as many people as you would like, but the first three finishers score.
