5K Costume Dash

Get ready for our 5th Annual 5K Dash For Literacy on Saturday, October 5, 2019. In addition to the 5K Dash Fun Run there will be a 1 Mile Fun Run, vendors, an obstacle course and a health fair. Costumes are not required for the race but, greatly encouraged. Check out our library calendar of events for pre-5K events. Registration and the race wil be at the library’s courtyard. Activities will follow in Oakwood Park.

This year to help get you ready for our 5K Costume Dash we have a special pre-5k event for you to do. Stop into the library and get the Couch to 5K sheet from the service desks. Do as many activities as you can before the 5K and then bring your sheet to the 5K to get stamps to win prizes.

We would like to welcome DJ Peppy who will be playing music and helping to MC the event.
