Registration for the fourth annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field’ will increase $5 for both adults and children after July 14, 2013. Interested participants are encouraged to register by mail or online at www.packers.com/5k before the deadline to receive a discounted rate of $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger).
After July 14, registration fees will increase to $30 for adults and $20 for children. Mail-in registration forms are available online and in person at Lambeau Field.
The event, presented by the Packers and Bellin Health, is a run/walk set for 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 27.
The computer-timed run 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 is 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.
All participants will receive a Packers’ 5K Run t-shirt, a logoed bag, a bib number and a timing chip. In addition, photos will be taken on the course and will be available at no cost on the Packers 5K Run website.
Former Packers players Dexter McNabb, Bill Schroeder and Tony Fisher also will take part in the event by running the 5K route with participants.
New this year, Back to Football will include the 1K Kids Run, presented by WPS Health Insurance. Kids 10 years old and younger will have the opportunity to run a Lambeau Lap on Friday, July 26, at 6 p.m. Registration for the Kids Run is $10 and all participants will receive a Packers 1K Run t-shirt, a logoed bag and a participant medal.
