Welcome the summer sun and support LARS’ work to end hunger and homelessness in the Laurel community. Celebrate the first day of summer and Father’s Day weekend with family, friends, and neighbors. Enjoy great food, music, and post-race activities after challenging yourself to a 5K run throughout Old Towne Laurel or a 1 mile walk around the field.
If you have participated in LARS’ Turkey Trot, the terrain will feel familiar with a few new challenges as we run a slightly modified (still USATF certified!) course… a great opportunity to get in shape for summer AND practice for next Thanksgiving!
Preregister at this link. Race day registration & check-in starts at 7:00AM at McCullough Field. Early check-in/packet pick up will be held at LARS on Friday, 6/19 (time TBA).
Warm-up begins at 7:40AM and the 5K run kicks off at 8:00AM. The 1 Mile Family Fun Walk begins at 8:05AM. Post-race activities, food, and prizes will follow at McCullough Field.
The 5K course takes runners through Historic Laurel and along the Patuxent River path. The 1 mile course is contained within McCullough Field.
Street parking is plentiful alongside the field and across Montgomery Street at the Laurel Boys & Girls Club.
