Beat Beethoven!

Did you know that Beethoven’s full 5th Symphony is about 33 minutes long?  At the Dart for the Arts this year, we will be playing Beethoven’s 5th Symphony beginning at the same time as the starting gun.  Come and see if you can finish the entire 5k course before the music stops!

Can YOU beat Beethoven?
