A family friendly event benefiting Vernonia Cares Food Bank – a 10K Run/5K Run/5K Kids Run(ages 6 – 9),/5K Walk and Kids Fun Run (ages 5 and under). Our 10K route takes you on the path from Anderson Park north to California Ave, up Bridge Street to Vernonia Lake, around the lake once and then back to Anderson Park on a trail, then through Anderson park, running on the Linear Trail (along Highway 47 South towards Highway 26) and doubling back to end at Anderson Park. The 5K Run/5K Kids Run and 5K Walk follows the path from Anderson Park north to California Ave, up Bridge Street to Vernonia Lake, around the lake once and then back to Anderson Park via a non-paved trail. Special Student Pricing While everyone 10 and under runs for free, we also wanted to make a category for students. Rather than exclude cash-strapped college students, we decided to just add an honor system based coupon code. If you are a student, and could prove it in some way (ID, etc) then enter coupon code “Student” at checkout and get a $10 discount on your entry fees.
The 10K and 5K events begin at 9:00am, with registration/ packet pick up 7:45am.
