Start Your Day with the Smokin’ 5K
Join the Derby Recreation Center at the Smoke on the Plains BBQ Festival for the inaugural Smokin’ 5K race on Saturday, June 10 at 7:30 a.m.
Following the 5K, we will have a non-timed Kids Fun Run. The course is just under a half mile around the soccer fields on the north end of the park.
The course is USATF certified. It will start and finish in High Park, and will run through the city streets. There will be awards for the overall female and overall male, and age group awards.
The Smokin’ 5K is an event you won’t want to miss! So lace up your sneakers, grab
your friends, and get ready to smoke the competition!
If you need some help getting started with your training, the Derby Recreation Center is holding Couch to 5K Training from April 8 through June 3 at 10 a.m. on Saturdays.
The DRC coach will use an interval training program that will gradually build your body up for a 5K run. This course includes an 8-week training calendar. Participants will receive a $5 off voucher for the Smokin’ 5K on June 10, 2023.
