The second annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field’ has surpassed half its capacity, the Green Bay Packers reported Thursday.
Interested participants are encouraged to register online at www.packers.com/5k or by mail before July 15 for a rate of $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger).
After July 15, registration fees will increase to $30 and $20 respectively and will be available until July 26.
Mail-in registration forms are available online and in person at Lambeau Field. Interested runners and walkers also are encouraged to register early as there is a cap on the number of participants for the event.
The event, presented by the Packers and Bellin Health, is a run/walk set for 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 30.
The computer-timed run is highlighted by a neighborhood route that ultimately takes participants into Lambeau Field and around the famed gridiron. The event has a special finish line – the Packers’ ‘G’ painted on turf located in the parking lot.
Bellin Health is contributing its considerable race expertise to the event through logistical and medical support. The organization’s 10K race, the Bellin Run, is among the nation’s most popular races, and drew more than 18,000 registrants for its 35th running last month.
All participants will receive a Packers’ 5K Run t-shirt, a logoed bag, a bib number and a timing chip. In addition, photos will be taken on the course and will be available at no cost on the Packers 5K Run website.
Packers-themed awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group. The awards ceremony will take place following the conclusion of the race.
The Packers are partnering with local charities to raise money with the event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, MS, Thrive to be the Best You and Unity Hospice.
Associate sponsors include Associated Bank and WIXX 101.
