Library Run & Walk

General Event Information:

Always the second Saturday in August: mark your calendar - the 27th annual event will be held on Saturday, August 13, 2016!
Route Maps:

As a visual aid, we've mapped out the routes on Googlemaps:

  • The BLUE line is the 5k run or walk (which is a circular route)
  • The RED line is the 1-mile walk or kids run (which goes out-and-back)


Pledge Awards:

Pledges aren't required to participate in the run & walk, simply encouraged and very much appreciated! Go the extra mile as a runner or walker and gather pledge money for your efforts. In years past, top prizes have included mountain bikes and Apple iPads. It's worth the effort!

Event Awards:

In the 5K run prizes are awarded for each the overall top male and female runners. Additionally, medals will be given to the first and second place finishers, male and female, in each age division for the 5k run. All kids 14 and under who participate in the 1-mile run receive a ribbon. Additionally, door prizes are drawn after the race from all paid entries.
