Registration for the third annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field’ will increase $5 for both adults and children after July 13, 2012. Interested participants are encouraged to register by mail or online at www.packers.com/5k before the deadline to receive a discounted rate of $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger).
After July 13, registration fees will increase to $30 for adults and $20 for children. Mail-in registration forms are available online and in person at Lambeau Field.
The event, presented by the Packers and Bellin Health, is a run/walk set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 28.
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.
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.
Former Packers players Bill Ferrario, Chris Jacke, Dexter McNabb, and Bill Schroeder also will take part in the event by running the 5K route with participants.
The Packers are partnering with local charities to raise money at the event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, the Volunteer Center of Green Bay, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and NEW Community Clinic.
WIXX 101 is serving as the radio partner for the event.
