The Fling is an early spring race where you see how good you are at pacing. The race starts a 45 minute timer. You hang around the start line until there is just enough time left for you to walk 5km. So, if you think you can walk a 5k in 40 minutes, you would hang around at the start until the clock read 5 minutes, then start off. If everyone guesses correctly, we have a mass finish. The winner is the one that finishes closest to 45 minutes on the clock. The only rule is that you cannot look at a clock/watch while you are walking.
We start at the stairs by the beach on the SE corner of the lake, go around the lake counter-clockwise, take the big loop around the band shell seating, continue on past the stairs, and finish just before the lake overlook where the monster used to be.
