Lace up your running shoes… it’s time for the Lakewood Run!

Runners and walkers of all ages are part of the Lakewood Run

The Lakewood Run returns the morning of Saturday, March 4, 2017 when Sheriff’s deputies, recreational runners, families and kids will gather at the starting line in front of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station to run the event’s 5K/10K course for time, or do the 1K “Fun Run” or a 5K walk.

Lakewood’s tree-lined residential streets provide the backdrop. The flat, “runner friendly” course is “fast” for practiced runners and comfortable for fitness fans and family members. Professional timing will be used.

Registration is $35 until February 24, and $40 thereafter. On the day of the event, registration begins at 6:30am. The 5K and 10K runs start at 8am. The Fun Run begins at 9:30am.

Participants directly support Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach and Lakewood Sheriff’s Station charity efforts in this family-friendly event, including the Su Casa Domestic Abuse Network, Pathways Volunteer Hospice, and uncovered expenses for the families of wounded or deceased deputies.

Finisher medals will be awarded to all participants for the 5k/10k. Performance tech shirts, a new highlight of the race, will be given to all runners. Ronald McDonald will entertain children and count down the start of the Fun Run. There will also be a fitness expo, displays of public safety equipment and programs, and special giveaways from local businesses.
