Earth Day 5k/10k and Kids Dash
Sat, April 22, 2017, 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
The Remington Park Board is excited to announce we will be hosting a 5k/10k timed run/walk and Kids Dash this Earth Day, Saturday April 22nd, 2017 form 8:00a-10:00a. The purpose of the 5k/10k event is to raise funds to support the current activities, structures, and landscaping at the Remington Community Parks as well as raise money for new and exciting projects. Particpants will take home an event t-shirt and a flower or seeds to plant at home!
The 5k/10k is a timed race and top finishers will receive medals. We have 1st-3rd place medals for six age groups per male and female groups. We also have 1st-3rd place overall male and female finishers. All 5k/10k participants will receive a t-shirt, and a flower or seeds to take home.
The Kids Dash event is a free race event for children of all ages (0-18). Participants will receive a ribbon and a popsicle!
The course, which will start at the new Remington Community Park and head out on the existing trails located behind the baseball fields, will also weave through Fountain Park and continue on the roads through the country landscape. The race allows for variety in terrain and scenery which allows for a unique experience for particpants.
Race day registration begins at 7:00a. Kids Dash events will begin promptly at 8:00a with the 5k/10k event starting at 8:30a. Awards will be distributed shortly after the race ends.
Paper forms can be found at several local businesses, through the Town of Remington website, or on the Remington Community Parks Facebook page.
Have a big race coming up?! We planned this event to take place prior to major races in Lafayette and Indianapolis to encourage runners to use our event as a training or qualifying run! Please consider joining us this year in supporting the Remington Community Parks!
Strollers are allowed! No pets are allowed, however. Thank you for understanding!
