The 4th Annual SUP & RUN 5K event will be held Nathan Benderson Park to benefit Operation Second Chance (OSC). Take a moment to learn more about OSC here: www.OperationSecondChance.org
The SUP & RUN 5K gives athletes three great races in one to choose from. A 5K Run, a 5K SUP or a 5K SUP & RUN. Athletes participating in the combination SUP & RUN, run the 5K first and then hop on their paddle board for a 5K paddle around Nathan Benderson Park. The event draws top runners and SUP’ers who compete for cash prizes and the not-so-serious athletes have a prominent place in the event. The SUP & RUN 5K is a family style event.
WALKERS ARE WELCOME and encouraged to attend.
The SUP & RUN 5K race venue is world-class, the medals/dog tags (all finishers receive one) are AMAZING, the race shirts and SWAG are truly head and shoulders above most races and the food & post race celebration party is FUN! FUN!
