The Annual Kentlands/Lakelands 5K Run, Walk and Kid’s Fun Runs will take place on Saturday, September 2nd starting with the kids runs at 8 a.m. on Main Street near the Kentlands/Lakelands Market Square Plaza and followed by the 5k at 8:30 a.m.
The kids events for children under 14 come in 2 sizes - either the 200 m Tot Trot or 500 m Kids Dash and start at 8:00 a.m., but come early to meet everyone and walk to the start.
This USATF certified 5K course winds and rolls through the new urbanist communities of Kentlands and Lakelands of Gaithersburg, giving participants the chance to experience the unique design of these award-winning neighborhoods. Modest hills make the course somewhat challenging, but not difficult for novice runners and walkers. The course also features live entertainment and two (2) water stops along the way!
