The 28th Kentlands/Lakelands 5K Run, Walk and Kid’s Fun Runs, as well as a virtual race component. The 5K course winds through the beautiful Lakelands and Kentlands neighborhoods before heading down Main Street to the finish line. Every 5K registration comes with a Dri-Fit crew neck race shirt (men’s, women’s, and kid’s sizes available). Enjoy our newly updated post-race Merchant’s Expo area while meeting with your friends and family! The 5k is a qualifying race for the 2022 National Senior Games in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Live entertainment on the course – local bands set up along the course to delight participants and spectators alike, making what is already a spirited and fun event even livelier! The event finishes with the awards ceremony, team awards (lots of family options), and raffle items donated by local merchants. Cash prizes for the top three male and female finishers.
Kids run includes two distances – 200 and 500 meters! Cotton t-shirt, designed by a local child resident, with each Fun Run registration and a new Kids area for a fun time after their event.
