Come on out for the 13th Annual Wicked Bottom 5K on Saturday, May 7th, 2022!
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.
For the in-person 5K the event is capped at 275 participants.  Registration Check in and Day of Registration (if we are not sold out) will begin at 6:00am, on Saturday May 7th.  We are working on early packet pick up options - check back for more details. 
Once you check in, we will have FREE Yoga available to warm up with and to stretch out with after your run/walk.
There will be a 1/2 mile Fun Run at 8:00am for kids and anyone not ready for the full 5K. 
At 8:30am we'll line up for the 5K.  After the last runner has finished we will present the awards.  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+.
