The College Park Community Foundation (CPCF) is pleased to host the 3rd Annual College Park Mother’s Day 5k. Runners and families will make their way around a five-kilometer (3.1 mile) course around downtown College Park, Calvert Hills, and Old Town, starting and ending at College Park City Hall. The race will welcome participants of all ages and abilities and feature a special start for runners with strollers, walkers, and families that choose to race together.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the outreach and grant-making activities of CPCF. Each year, through a competitive application process, CPCF awards monetary grants to non-profits and service organizations that charitably serve College Park residents in three priority areas: Education, Quality of Life, and Community-Building. Since 2013, CPCF has granted more than $10,000 to more than 15 nonprofit organizations.
CPCF is offering the opportunity for registrants to participate in the “Couch to 5k” program and will offer facilitated group runs/walks between mid-March and race day.
Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in different categories (Male, Female, Overall, Stroller Runners, etc.) Prizes will include pies, as well as donations from local businesses.
Registration fees range from $20 (early bird) to $35 (day-of registration) and families will also be able to save by registering as family (of up to 3 people) at a reduced cost. Children 8 and under will race for free. Each registration includes a premium race shirt and Bibtag timing system.
