About This Activity

We double dog dare you to find another 5k in this area that is this amazing.

During your cross country run/walk at Lake Land College you will pass by corn fields, baseball/softball fields, wind turbines, 2 ponds, a cemetery, a recycling left and much more. The course is absolutely stunning in the fall and you’ll be missing out if you don’t join us!

All proceeds collected from the Run for Fun 5K will be donated to the Lake Land College Foundation.

The Lake Land College Foundation was established exclusively for educational, scientific and charitable purposes. The Foundation assists the College in developing and enhancing the educational opportunities and service to its students, alumni and citizens of the district. The thrust of the Foundation is to provide student scholarships through funds contributed by individuals, agencies and corporations. The Foundation awards on average 400 scholarships every year, totaling $360,000.
