Itโ€™s a strange time for Kent’s running community; however, our friends at Kent Parks remain committed to doing something fun for local runners and walkers so families can get out, get active, and have (safe) fun together!

Beginning Oct. 5, 2020, they’ll be holding a month-long event: the Kent Parks Fall Classic. Each week theyโ€™ll feature a new challenge; participants can email in their photos or results to be featured on their social media accounts or win some great prizes.

“While we cannot come together for one large event, you can get out on your own time to tackle the course! Our hope is to make it an annual 5k run/walk next year.”

The 5k course starts and stops at Three Friends Fishing Hole, located at 20025 Russell Road (map below). The starting line is directly behind the wood sculpture on the trail. Miles and turnaround will be marked with signs. We’ll post the course map soon – ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™š๐™™!
