The Kakabeka Falls Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion in concert with the Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park will be presenting its second annual 5K fun runs on Friday July 19 in the Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park.
Friday July 19 in the Park is “Healthy Parks Healthy People” day – so entry to the Park is FREE as is the parking. There will also be other events going on that day in the Park for the entire family
There will be TWO 5K Fun Runs that day – one starting at 11 am, the second starting at 3 pm. Come check out part of the Kakabeka Falls Legion Half Marathon course as both fun runs start at Mile 8 of the Half Marathon course and take participants through the Poplar Point Trail to the 5K finish line on the North side of the Falls parking Lot which is just past Mile 11.
Everyone is welcome – including runners, walkers, strollers and even pets (though they must be on a leash).
You can park on the north or south side of the Falls in the main parking lots at NO COST !!! and take the short walk up the big hill to the entrance of the Whispering Hills Campsites where the start line will be.
The best part – cost to participate is a measly 5 bucks for EACH race– just so we can cover our costs to set it up. If you have already registered for the Kakabeka Falls Legion Half Marathon or 8K – that same 5 bucks will get you into BOTH races if you want to do them both.
Registrations are now open !!! and it will be FREE to register in advance – no credit card needed — and we will collect the 5 bucks from you when you check in — and we will even lend you a bib. The races will also be timed, and the times will be posted on our Facebook Page.
You can register by going to our web page – www.runkbfalls.com – and click on the BLUE 5K Fun Run registration button at the top of the page. The orange registration button will take you to the registration page for the Kakabeka Falls Legion Half Marathon, the 8K AND the Juno Beach Challenge on August 18.
