The Sterling Down and Dirty 5K is a fun, family friendly, community-wide event and beyond! It is NOT just for those who are fit, but IT IS totally for “The Average Joe” looking to have a great time. You WILL NOT be timed and the only person you will be competing against is yourself. Go at your own pace. No need to rush!
