Come on out for the 12th Annual Wicked Bottom 5K on Saturday May 1st, 2021!


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.

Please note the Department is hopeful to be able to operate the Wicked Bottom with limited to no modification depending on the status of COVID-19 guidelines / restrictions at the time of the event. However, depending on what those guidelines / restrictions are come April 2021 - the Department will make a final decision regarding this event. If necessary, it will be operated in a virtual format.


Finish line will be electronically timed.  Race results will be available as soon as you cross the finish line.  Final results will be posted online as well.


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, 60-64, and 65+.


Don't forget the kids! A 1/2-mile fun run through in the park 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.******
