Valentine's Dash 5k
This race will get you outside to enjoy a combination of trails and paved pathways in two Kentwood Parks. Race will begin and end at East Paris Park (5995 E Paris Ave SE). This course is great for first-time runners or walkers but will also provide a challenge to more experienced runners. This race is perfect for running with your sweet heart, soul mate, BFF or to meet someone new! Kids and families are welcome. The fastest runners will be awarded but there will be no formal awards ceremony. Awards will be available for pick-up the week after the event or can be mailed. Everyone is encouraged to wear their best Valentine themed costumes but it's not required. Runners will receive a long sleeve shirt and other goodies in their participant packets.
We will be using funds generated from this race to support our Little Free Pantry. This Pantry provides much needed food and hygiene products to those who need them the most in our community with no questions asked. Bring extra $ or a non-perishable item to donate and be entered to win a special door prize!
The Kentwood Parks & Recreation Department will continue to monitor public health guidance and state orders, which may necessitate changes to the event. Certain precautionary measures may be taken such as waves, increased physical distancing, and elimination of an awards ceremony.
