About This Activity

A non-traditional race primarily to introduce the beginner walkers and runners to the 5K experience! One BIG goal we have is to provide all runners with great “SCHWAG” (N. DEFINITION: free merchandise; swag) in the goodie bags – in fact we pride ourselves on getting the most we can into a bag!

There are NO medals for being the fastest! BUT! EVERYONE gets a door prize donated by wonderful businesses!

All participants are given a gym bag instead of a shirt, however we like your shirt sizes in case you win one as a door prize.

The course starts as beautiful Cravath Lakefront Park. It winds around and across to Tripp Lake along a wide paved trail. The course offers the two lakes, a serene wooded area, wonderful water plants and wildlife! There is a bathroom on the course with a water fountain that you will pass twice! Water is provided on the course with a rider to lead the pack and offer assistance if needed. Uncle Bob's Cheer group is also watching for you on the route to offer encouragement! Many spectators enjoy this race because they can see the runners heading out across the lake and when they are heading back to the finish.

At the finish we have a timing clock and finisher's certificates. Refreshments are available when you go inside the pavilion to claim your door prize! THIS YEAR WE ARE HAVING SHAVED ICE AT THE FINISH!

Make sure to visit the vendors at the mini-expo before and after the event!

Parking is available conveniently at the start of the race. Registration and bag pick up will begin at 7AM. Each year we design a new bib and email it to you with your name on.

THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THIS EVENT - IS YOU! tHE BEGINNER OR NOVICE RUNNER/WALKER - IT IS NOT ABOUT SPEED - IT IS ABOUT ACCOMPLISHMENT!

**This year part of the proceeds will go towards the Parkinsons Support Group of Janesville, WI
