Registration is now underway for the third annual Lake Pacawa Run, Walk, and Roll 5K.

The race will be held on Friday, July 28. Check-in time will be held 4:30-5:45 p.m., with a starting time of 6 p.m.

The timed 5K is now a part of the annual Celebrate Plover festival, as 2023 marks the first time that Celebrate Plover formally becomes a two-day affair.

Registration for the race is $50 and can be found here.

Country music favorite Southbound will be performing from 6-11 p.m., and food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The mission of the Lake Pacawa 5K is to “provide an inclusive, family friendly, community activity and to encourage physical activity as a means to better overall health for individuals of all ages and abilities.”

Karen Trzebiatowski, co-organizer of the event, said the proceeds from the race will go to maintaining the park at Lake Pacawa. The park last year held a grand-opening on its $4 million all-inclusive remodel, funding by about $2 million in private donations, and $2 million in tax increment from a nearby TIF district for Lake Park Apartments.
