The Town of Tonawanda proudly holds a 5K Run every Spring. With the run taking place in May, favorable temperatures and weather are always expected. The USATF Sanctioned run begins right in the parking lot of one of the Town’s most prized facilities, The Aquatic and Fitness Center.
Our certified course leads participants through various residential streets and also runs parallel to Elmlawn Cemetery for an extended period of time. Once all runners and walkers have finished, they are welcomed with food and refreshments under our covered tent. Prizes are given out to the first overall male and female, plus awards to the top three in each of the following groups (male and female): 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79 and 80 plus (no duplicate awards).
Drawing about 200 plus participants, the Town’s 5K run is a great venue to get a work out as well as socialize with friends and family!
