About the Event

Maplewood Parks and Recreation is excited to host our annual Rec Run 3k/5k! This fun event is for all skill levels from serious runners to a family looking for a fun fall event! The race has a 3k option for younger runners/families or a full 5k! The race starts at the Maplewood Community Center and heads down the Gateway Trail to Robinhood Park (the 3k turnaround) or continue to Flicek Park (the 5k turnaround). A child gets to run free with a paid adult. Each registration comes with free entry to the Maplewood Community Center/YMCA!

Kids are encouraged to dress as their favorite super hero or cartoon character!
