The Andante 5k Walk & Run
June 10, 2016 - June 11, 2016
Join the Muncie Symphony League for our first ever musical race – the Andante 5k Walk & Run! Presented as an outdoor ambulatory concert around the beautiful Ball State University campus, the course will feature 4 different live music setups along the way. Additionally, the MSO’s Maestro Douglas Droste will lead off the race from the start line in his concert tails!
The 5k will be headlined by Dr. Boldylocks & the Twitter Allstars at the Start/Finish line in front of Ball Gym, two more ensembles will play at the two turnaround points of the course, and at the center of it all, the Shafer Tower Carillon will chime away, played by Dr. Ron Rarick.
The course has been designed to be exceptionally safe and very family-friendly. The first 2.6 miles take place over roads that will be fully closed and police-controlled. No traffice to worry about! The remainder of the course finishes up entirely on sidewalks, again – no traffic!
In addition to the unique experience of getting to listen to live music while you run/walk, each registrant will receive a T-shirt, all age group and overall winners will receive MSO ticket packages, and even more MSO concert tickets will be given away as door prizes after the race!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
After the race, take some time to relax, maybe by visiting the Art Museum, or a restaraunt in The Village, but be sure to come back for the Muncie Symphony Orchestra‘s FREE outdoor concert: “Festival on the Green”! An Arts Fair will open at 5:30, followed by the concert at 7pm.
