05/17/2012

Computer-Timed Route Includes Lap Around Lambeau Field

The Green Bay Packers and Bellin Health have announced details for the third annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field,’ set for Saturday, July 28.

The computer-timed run, which begins at 6:30 p.m., is highlighted by a neighborhood route that ultimately takes participants into Lambeau Field and around the famed gridiron. The event has a special finish line – the Packers’ ‘G’ painted on turf located in the parking lot.

Bellin Health will be contributing its considerable race expertise to the event through logistical and medical support. The organization’s 10K race, the Bellin Run, is among the nation’s most popular races. This year’s Bellin Run will mark the 36th running of the 10K race.

All participants will receive a Packers 5K Run T-shirt, a logoed bag, and a bib number and timing chip. In addition, photos will be taken on the course and will be available at no cost on the Packers 5K Run website.

Packers-themed awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group. An awards ceremony will take place inside the Tundra Tailgate Zone following the conclusion of the race.

Registration, which is $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger), will be available online beginning Wednesday, May 16, at www.packers.com/5k. Mail-in registration is also an option, with forms available online and in person at Lambeau Field. Interested runners and walkers are encouraged to register early. After July 13, registration fees will increase to $30 and $20, respectively.

The Packers are partnering with local charities to raise money with the event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, Volunteer Center of Green Bay, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and NEW Community Clinic.

WIXX 101 is serving as the radio partner for the event.
