About the Race

Join us for this fun Friday evening in Midtown Wilmington! Art Moves Midtown 5k will feature some of Wilmington’s most scenic mileage of the Cross City Trail as it loops through Halyburton Park. The Minnie’s Mile will be a flat course on the Cross City Trail and serves to raise awareness of local visionary artist Minnie Evans. The CAM campus will be a lively spot with art activities, live music and art all around.
