Kent Cornucopia Days 5K will return this year on July 10

Registration open for run that starts at Three Friends Fishing Hole

The Kent Cornucopia Days 5K, organized by the city of Kent, is returning in 2021.

The race will be 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 10 at Three Friends Fishing Hole, 19970 Russell Road.

Registration is open. Registration costs are $15, or $30 with a T-shirt. Deadline to register and receive a shirt is June 11. Day of race registration starts at 7:30 a.m., but no shirts will be available.

The race will kick off at Three Friends Fishing Hole; runners will be routed north around Briscoe Park. The out and back course is wide making it easy to pass.

The start will be in waves of 30-1 minute apart with the fastest runners going first. Masks will be required at all times except when participating on the course. Once runners cross the line, they are to put on masks and proceed to the open grass area for water and rest.

Awards will be given to the top finishers in each age group as well as overall winners. Ribbons for 2-5 places will not be offered this year.

Check out the Kent Cornucopia Days 5K webpage for more information, to sign up and details about what race day will look like this year. Parking will be available at Columbia Distributing, directly next to Three Friends Fishing Hole.

Participants age 60 and over run for free, courtesy of Kent Bowl.

While the 5K is on, the Kent Lions Club announced earlier this year the Cornucopia Days festival downtown in July has been canceled due to COVID-19.
