The Lakewood Run

March 7, 2020 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM


Rain or shine, the Lakewood Run returns on Saturday, March 7, 2020 when Sheriff’s deputies, recreational runners, families and kids gather at the starting line in front of the Lakewood Sheriff’s Station to run the event’s 5K/10K course for time, or do the 1K “Fun Run” or a 5K walk.

Lakewood’s tree-lined residential streets provide the backdrop. The flat, “runner friendly” course is fast for practiced runners and comfortable for fitness fans and family members.
