THE PALMER LAKE .5K (YES “POINT” 5)
SUNDAY OCT 9th – 10:30-12:30
On October 9, 2022, Awake the Lake will hold its 8th Annual PALMER LAKE .5K (Yes “Point” 5), and it just keeps getting better. The “run for everyone” is a challenging entire ½ kilometer, where competitors are rewarded not only with the unique views of beautiful Palmer Lake, Colorado in autumn, but also a donut in the middle, and a beer/soda waiting at the finish line. This year’s event gets a new twist as we get to “run” across the bridge we have been working so hard to fund!
Come out and join us in the only fun way we could come up with, and continue to support the improvement of parks, recreation and the namesake of Palmer Lake, Colorado!
