2016 Recap  

Batman, Wonder Woman, Ironman, and Superman were just some of the many superheroes that showed up to support the SUPERHERO 5k at Cook Park. 

With nearly 450 in attendance and perfect weather, fun was had by all on the course.  After the race, the festivities continued with visits from therapy animals, an obstacle course, fire and police and photos with the Superhero Coalition. The Old Spaghetti Factory gave gift certificates to race winners and to every child who participated in the first-ever SUPERHERO Villain Chase.
