Second Annual Springfield 15K / 5K Set for June 4

Second Annual Springfield 15K / 5K Set for June 4

The 2nd annual running of the Springfield 15K / 5K race will be held the morning of Saturday, June 4 in conjunction with the Springfield Days Festival.

For more than 20 years, Springfield Days weekend has been an annual community celebration of all that Springfield has to offer. Now this weekend also means a highlight on the racing calendar for area runners.

Mark Russell, co-owner of Metro Run & Walk, a Platinum Sponsor, is returning as race director. He envisions a growing signature event, “We think this race should be on every runner’s calendar because it combines so many great aspects: a terrific course, a stadium track finish, substantial community involvement, and a great charitable cause. Last year’s inaugural race drew 500 runners and walkers and raised more than $8,000 for local recreation and fitness programs for underserved youth. We could push 1,000 runners this year.”
