GREENWOOD – Organizers have added a 5k fun run to the Greenwood Fun Day schedule for the first time ever.
Participants are asked to sign up before Aug. 4 to receive a t-shirt for the event, which will take place on Saturday, Aug. 19. Check-in starts at 7 a.m. and the race starts at 8 a.m.
Awards for top three male and female runners and the top three in four divisions are planned.
Organizer Jason Nichelson said they have mapped out a special route for the race.
“We wanted to keep the route on one side of town so it is unique,” he said. “The route takes us off road; up a hill and through the beautiful Greenwood Cemetery.”
Any funds left over after the event will be donated to the Greenwood Park and Rec fund to continue to beautify the community and create more opportunities for families to enjoy the outdoors. The board’s most recent project was the new playground in Greenwood Village Park, which will be dedicated during Greenwood Fun Day.
