  • WHAT: BWL Hometown Power 5K
  • WHEN: Saturday, August 12 at 9am

This year’s course will run in neighborhoods near the REO Town building and along the river trail (see attached document for course map). Each finisher will receive a race tech t-shirt and a finisher’s medal. Medals will also be awarded to the top three in each age group and overall winners. There will also be a free kids’ fun run following the completion of the 5K.

"The BWL 5K is a great way for people to stay active and also raise money that goes back into the community, all at the same time," said General Manager Dick Peffley.

Lansing’s TimeFrame Photography will be on site taking free pictures of participants throughout the entire day.

Packet pick-up will be held on Friday, August 11 at the REO Town Depot from 5-8pm, as well as from 7-8:45am the morning of the race. Interested runners can still register at packet pick-up and the morning of the race, or by registering here.
