14th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5K

Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017, 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.


"Your first course for the day." 

This 5K run and walk through north Lawrence is sponsored by runLawrence.  It has been a tradition for many families to start off their Thanksgiving Day.  The course is flat and shows off the charm of north Lawrence.  Some year's you get to run with an Olympian like Amy Cragg last year, or a few years ago running with a young deer along most of the course.

The 5K starts at 8:30 am from Woodlawn School and meanders through the streets east of the school.  Runners and walkers should be off the streets by 10 am.

The run benefits the elementary school marathon clubs as well as Woodlawn School.

About 1100 are expected to participate this year.  If you are not running, come out and cheer on your friends and family.
