Who may participate?
Everyone! Whether you are a serious runner wanting a timed run or just want to enjoy the day, the Sweeney 5K and 1K are sure to satisfy. All ages are welcome.
What is the cost?
The early registration entry fee is $35 and includes the race and a tee shirt.
Can I bring my dog?
We have had several dogs at our event in the past. Just be sure that your dog is on a leash and has all of the required vaccinations.
Can I push a stroller while running in the 5K or 1K?
Sure! Just be sure to stay to the side so that faster runners may go around if necessary.
What else is there to do at Camp Sweeney's Play for the Day besides the 5K and 1K?
There is a lot to do even if you don’t want to run in either race. There are children’s activities, rides, face painting, and balloon art.
What is this event for? Who does it benefit?
There are 3 purposes for this event. The first is to raise awareness for childhood diabetes and T1D. The second is to raise scholarship funds for children who have diabetes to attend Camp Sweeney. And the final purpose of the event is to provide a wonderfully active family/community outing.
