Join us for a Poppin' good time! We'll be popping mountains of popcorn and squeezing fresh lemons for a cold glass of lemonade for all participants that join us for a 5k or 10k fun run/walk.  

This community event offers a 5k and 10k walk/run option. 

All participants will receive finishing medals and will be offered your own large bag of tasty kettle corn and a large refreshing cup of lemonade made with real lemons. 

Remember this is a fun run.  We are not timing you.  Everyone gets 1st place for coming out.  We just want you to have fun!

Each event will have a staggered start with waves of 25 participants or less to allow for physical distancing. We ask that participants arrive on location 15 min before their designated start time. Have a printed or digital copy of registration to show staff at the registration tent.  *We will have a recycle bin to put your paper copy in so staff will not need to handle the paper.

Once you’ve checked in please find an open space near the start line at least 6’ from other participants to allow for physical distancing (not including members of your cohort). The race announcer will help get you warmed up in your physically distanced space. 

After the run/walk, participants will receive a participation medal, a bag of kettle corn and a cup of fresh lemonade.

We'll send you an event information email before the big day. In the meantime, here’s a bit more information to help you plan your day:

On the day...

Sign in at the registration tent 15 min before your start time and then move to a physically distanced space to stretch and warm up.  


Before the run…

Our emcee will help you get warmed up and ready for the main event. The warm-up will include some simple moves to get everyone going.


On the course…

Run, jog, or walk around the course. This event is not timed, so go at your own pace!

There will be at least two water stops along the course. You may bring your own water bottle for easy filling and fewer shared touch points. 


At the finish line…

Celebrate with your fellow participants and make sure you take some photos with your medal and popcorn reward before you head home! 


After the event…

Share your photos with us on Facebook and Instagram by using the hashtag #thepopcornrun
