Proud to be an officially timed race!
Run a 5K, then cool off with a "Slide" down the big slides!
5K Run/Walk - 8:00am
The Saturday Slip N Slide 5K Run/Walk is held each year in conjunction with the Saturday Slip N Slide event at Rosewood Park in Jenison. The Run raises money to support Kids Hope USA, helping at-risk children right here in our neighborhoods. From the dedicated runner to the morning walker, this run is for you. The Saturday Slip N Slide 5K Run will take you past Rosewood Park where you’ll see preparations underway for the Saturday Slip N Slide event later that day, and through the surrounding neighborhoods. Wagons and strollers are welcome, but we ask that you leave your pets at home. Each pre-registered participant will receive a race shirt (adult male/female sizes will be dry-fit; youth sizes will be a poly/cotton blend).
Pre-registration cost is $30 before June 1st; late registration (after June 1st) and same day registration is $35. There is also a flat student rate for Elementary - High School student for $25.
