Do you need a little exercise, the opportunity to sleep in, a t-shirt, a beer and a cupcake?
Well then this is your kind of 5k.

The City will be hosting the inaugural Santee Sunset 5k so the public can walk or run in the footsteps of Olympians. The 5k course will be the same as the U.S. Olympic Team Trials 50km Race Walking course that professional athletes just competed on to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Race Walking team in the Tokyo 2020 games that morning. All ages and fitness levels welcome, bring the whole family.
