Per the Kentlands/Lakelands 5K website: Live entertainment will be featured on the course – local bands set up along the course to delight participants and spectators alike, making what is already a spirited and fun event even livelier. The event finishes with the awards ceremony, team awards (lots of family options), and raffle items donated by local merchants. Cash prizes for the top three male and female finishers.

Kids run includes two distances – 200 and 500 meters! Cotton t-shirt, designed by a local child resident, with each Fun Run registration and a Kids area for a fun time after their event.

Various charities will be supported by sugn-ups and donations.
