The 9th annual Cheadle Lake 5K/10K and Kids Obstacle Dash will once again be hosted by Build Lebanon Trails on Saturday, May 5. The 5K/10K fun run follows a loop around Cheadle Lake and through Cheadle Park on a mix of pavement, packed gravel, and hard packed dirt. The 5K and 10K is $25 for adults and $10 for students (18 and under.) Family and group rates are also available.
The Kids Obstacle Dash is a 1/2 mile course for kids 10 and under. It includes a gunny sack race, a balance beam, the pool noodle slalom, and much more. Kids can get in on the fun for just $10. Adults are welcome to follow their kids and help them out if needed. Check the website for information about free registration for the first 100 kids!
