Registration is open for the ninth annual Kent Cornucopia Days 5K Fun Run and Walk on Saturday, July 14.

Kent Parks program coordinator Mark Hendrickson said the race is quickly becoming a summer tradition for many residents throughout the Puget Sound.

“The course is U.S. Track and Field certified and is one of the few flat courses in the area," Hendrickson said. "We’ll have awards for the top five finishers in each age group, with random prizes such as a wake board, free registration forms for the Dirty Dash and gift certificates from many local businesses.”

Hosted by the Kent Parks Recreation and Community Servicers, the entry fee is $10 or $25 (with a technical T-shirt) before July 12.  Participants age 60 and older run for free. The race starts at 9 a.m.

Register online at or pick up registration forms at the Kent Commons and many Puget Sound athletic stores.

While the race starts at the parking lot of the Riverbend Golf Course, parking is available at Russell Road Park, 24400 Russell Road and Kent Elementary School, 24700 64th Ave. S.

There is no race parking at Riverbend Golf Course. Please allow for an additional five to 10 minute walk from the parking lot to the registration/starting area. Staff will be on site to provide guidance.

To avoid the lines on race day; pick up shirts and bibs Wednesday, July 11 from 3-7 p.m. at Road Runner Sports at Kent Station.

Race day registration and packet pick up is also available near the start/finish line at 7:30 a.m.
