CHESTER KIWANIS 5K RACE
Memorial Day Weekend Saturday May 29 2021
Chester Kiwanis is pleased to host the 26th edition of the 5k race and the club has put in place safety measures for the volunteers and the participants. The event will be a scaled down version of the event that you have enjoyed in past years. There will not be water stations, if needed carry your personal water. There will not be any post race refreshments, breakfast or an award ceremony. For this year only there will be an open start time that will range from 8:30 am until 9:00 am. Everyone will follow the CDC guidelines wearing a mask and maintaining social distance while attending this event..
The Chester Kiwanis Club has enjoyed hosting this race for 25 years, providing a very competitive 5K at the start of the summer running season and at the conclusion of the race offering the participants refreshments, a full hot breakfast, ice cream, and free raffle drawings. We trust that even without these amenities, the running community will respect and understand the decisions we have made and will continue to support this race. Our community needs you.
Registered runners and walkers will pick up their bib and Tee shirt in the Chester Community Park and will have an extended window of opportunity to start the race with social distancing. The results will be calculated from net time with a start and end mat.
