Pre-registration still open for 2nd annual BunnyHop 5K

Runners still have some time to pre-register for the 2nd annual BunnyHop 5K this weekend. 

The race begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Founders Park. Pre-registration must be completed by Wednesday, but runners can still register the day of the event. 

Co-chair Jason Onks said the event drew about 200 runners last year, leading organizers to bring the race around for a second year. A kids’ dash in the park will follow the main event, and Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church will host an egg hunt after both races conclude at about 10:30. 

“The Blue Plum Organization is very happy to be able to provide this health and wellness event for our community for the second year,” Onks said. 

The 5K will begin at the park, then continue down Commerce Street, by King Commons Park, under the interstate overpass, and loop back around to finish back in the park. Onks said most of the race is simple. 

Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners, top masters and top three males and females in the10 and younger, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 and older age brackets.

The entry fee for the 5K is $20 per person in advance and $25 the day of the race. Children 12 and younger can participate in all events for free, and the first 50 kids to the race will get a pair of bunny ears. All runners over the age of 13 who pre-register will receive a T-shirt.

Early packet pickup is available at Fleet Feet Sports, 302 Buffalo St., from 4-6 p.m. on Friday. The egg hunt at Munsey is open to all members of the community.

Online registration can be completed at www.athlinks.com/event/bunny-hop-5k-kids-dash-196147. A course map is also available at this link. Participants will be using the city approved “Course 6” and times will be documented by WeRunEvents. Public parking is available in the pavilion lot and at Munsey.
