Virtual 5K Run & Kids' Raccoon 1K coming in October!
Every day is Earth Day at the Kalamazoo Nature Center! That's why we're excited to announce the re-launch of our annual Earth Day 5K and Kids Raccoon 1K run/walk for October, 2020. These virtual runs will benefit KNC's early childhood education programs and celebrate KNC's 60th anniversary. Simply register online today, pick up your race packet safely this fall, and run or walk any time during the month of October.
We'll provide suggested, marked routes at KNC for both the 5K and 1K runs. You're welcome to run anywhere you choose, but we're certain you'll find our routes to be among the most beautiful in southwest Michigan. Plus, get a chance to win a KNC gift package by posting a photo to social media on the day of your run or walk. Just use the exclusive hashtag found in your race packet.
Registration is now $35 for the 5K, and $20 for the Raccoon Run. Upon registration, you will receive an acknowledgement email with a link to your virtual "run bib" with suggested routes. Stop by KNC's Guest Services Desk during business hours between Friday, October 30 and Sunday, November 1 to pick up your run shirt. Packet can also be maile for an additional $10 (within continental US). If outside of US, please contact us for shipping. What's included:
