 Come on out for the 9th Annual Wicked Bottom 5K and experience the fun everyone had last year!


 This Cross Country run starts from the scenic grounds of Lenn Park.  The course circles the northern side of the Park then crosses over to Old House Vineyards where you will pass the rows of vines while following the gravel road, then return to Lenn Park where you will follow the gravel trail that winds along the border of the Park property in view of Mountain Run Creek.  The course is fairly level with only a few short hills and with luck, you may catch a glimpse of wildlife.


Awards will be provided to the overall male/female finishers, and to 1st - 3rd place finishers in 11 different age groups of: 14 and under, 15-19,20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60+.


Don't forget the kids! A 1/2-mile fun run through the vineyards will be held prior to the start of the 5K.  The 1/2 Mile fun run is open to kids and Adults.



Mom & Dad...while you're running KidCentral will be on site providing entertainment for the kids in the form of games and crafts.







After the 5K, participants can relax with:    




FREE YOGA with Pranapiloga



FREE WINE TASTINGS by Old House Vineyards
