“Will Run for Cannoli 5k” is a family fun run/walk and will be held on July 7th, at Lions Park in Cheyenne. Participants can expect a fun course, age division prizes, raffles, and cannoli at the end!!!
The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. near where the Old Community House used to be. Participants will run toward the east around Sloan’s Lake, go through the tunnel under Central Avenue, and then run counter-clockwise around the golf course. Participants will then go through the tunnel again and continue running westerly around Sloan’s Lake, ending at the beach. There, each participant will receive a delicious, homemade, Sicilian cannolo!!
The Course will start at the intersection of the old Kiwanis House parking lot and main drive. From there runners will continue on the road until it intersects with the running/bike path that parallels Yellowstone road. Runners will follow the path until it intersects with the option to continue straight or turn right and head under Central Ave. At this point Runners will turn right and run under the Central Ave Bridge. After coming up the tunnel climb, runners will turn left and follow Yellowstone Road north along with the Airport Golf club on the left. The Golf club will remain on your left the entire way, all the way around. Once you come back to where you came out of the tunnel, you will renter the Central Ave. tunnel and head back into Lions Park. Course marshals will guide you to turn left, back towards the path you followed into the tunnel. Almost immediately, you will turn right on the smaller path that heads towards the amphitheater. This path will take you along the lakeside (always to the left) all the way to the finish line at the beach on the lake.
