About the Run/Walk

  • The Stride for Science Run/Walk benefits SBM’s Proven Science—Better Health Giving Campaign. 100% of the proceeds go to SBM’s Science Communication Fund which helps scientists communicate their work to the public using resources like our Sci Comm Toolkit.

  • Both runners and walkers are encouraged to sign up

  • The Run/Walk is a 5k through Kiwanis Park, making a lap around the beautiful Kiwanis Lake and jogging along side the scenic Western Canal. For a shorter route, both runners and walkers are welcome to take a roughly one mile lap around Kiwanis Lake. View the map here.

  • The Physical Activity SIG will be leading everyone in warm up exercises before the Run/Walk

  • There will be a shuttle service from the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown to Kiwanis Park and from Kiwanis Park to the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown. Each trip is approximately 25 minutes
