The 26th Kentlands/Lakelands 5K Run, Walk and Kid’s Fun Runs will take place on Saturday, August 31st starting with the kids runs at 8 a.m. on Main Street near the Kentlands/Lakelands Market Square Plaza and followed by the 5k at 8:30 a.m.
The kids events for children under 14 come in 2 sizes - either the 200 m Tot Trot or 500 m Kids Dash and start at 8:00 a.m., but come early to meet everyone and walk to the start. Based on number of runners there may be more than one start for each event.
This USATF certified 5K course winds and rolls through the new urbanist communities of Kentlands and Lakelands of Gaithersburg, giving participants the chance to experience the unique design of these award-winning neighborhoods. Modest hills make the course somewhat challenging, but not difficult for novice runners and walkers. The course also features live entertainment and two (2) water stops along the way!
Please note that the company/friends team competition is for runners over the age of 18.
