Description of Event: Hop on over to our Easter Hop 5K (sorry, we couldn’t resist the pun). This should be a great family event with a 5K race followed by an Easter Egg hunt for kids ages 2 – 8. Each registration receives one ticket to the hunt if purchased prior to the registration close date. Additional egg hunt tickets can be purchased separately at registration checkout. There will be a prize for the best costumes – four prizes in all. The best man’s, woman’s, boy’s and girl’s costume will be a winner.

In addition to the ticket to the Easter Egg hunt, everyone whose registration is received by March 25 will receive a FREE race shirt! Any shirts not picked up will be available for sale following the race.
