Register now for the Lakewood Run coming March 4, 2023

The 32nd annual Lakewood Run, “Warriors Building a Healthier Community,” returns on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Deputy Sheriffs, recreational runners, families and kids will gather at the starting line in front of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station to walk, roll, ruck or run the event’s 5K Run/Walk/Ruck or the 10K Run course for time.

New this year, participants can do a 5K Ruck. Rucking is the action of walking with a weighted rucksack (backpack) on your back. Rucking is a low-impact exercise based on military training workouts.

All participants will be supporting Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach and Lakewood Sheriff’s Station charity efforts while they pursue their personal best in the 5K/10K event for time or just for fun in this family-friendly event.

Early bird registration fees are in effect through Jan. 31. The fee is $45 for the 5K Run/Walk, $50 for the 5K Ruck, or $50 for the 10K Run.

Professional timing will be used. Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each category of the 5K and 10K running events. All finishers for the 5K/10K will receive finisher medals.

For participants and spectators, the day includes a fitness expo and displays of public safety equipment and programs. There is also live entertainment and special giveaways from Lakewood-area businesses.
