Description

_ The 2022 Blazing 5k Run:

Welcome to the fastest 5k in the Midwest!

2022 marks the 3rd annual Blazing 5k. The last two years historic races welcomed elites and runners of all types. The 5k course starts on the back loop in Water Works Park and shoots out the gun going clockwise on the flat and fast loop. At the end of the loop the racers are greeted by a prize for the first person to cross the mat. From there it's another flat and fast main loop going clockwise. This area offers plenty of space for spectators and the field can be seen for almost the entirety of this loop. It finishes on the screaming fast and long straightaway to the finish.

2020 Prize Purse: $600 + shoes + gift cards

2021 10k Invite Prize Purse: $2250 + shoes + gear

2021 Blazing 5k Prize Purse: $1750

The 3rd edition of the event date is now taking place on October 9th, 2022.
