Information on the Basket Festival 5k Race

Proudly Sponsored by Bettcher Industries for over 20 years.


Runners, from beginners to marathon-extrodinares, took part in the 2014 Basket Festival 5K Race and Fun Run, sponsored by Bettcher Industries on Saturday, August 2, 2014!  Individuals, groups of friends, and families all arrived to kick-off the Festival's Saturday events by participating in the 5K Race or the Fun Run.  This year we had nearly 100 runners, who participated in the rain, and are looking for an even bigger turnout in 2015 (and sunnier weather)! 

To register, please check back here in Spring 2015 for forms and instructions.

The 5K Race traditionally starts at 9:00 a.m., and the Fun Run starts at 9:05 a.m.  Check-in before the race is at the large pavilion at Memorial Park.  Top 5K Race performers in each age group will be presented with awards, and each runner has an opportunity to win door prizes!  Check out photos of the 2014 5K Race and Fun Run on our Photo page.
