A Bunny Hop 5K and Kids Fun Run Egg Hunt will be Saturday, April 15, at Edmund Orgill Park in Millington.
The two events, presented by P.R. Event Management, are open to the community and will benefit Edmund Orgill Park. McAlister’s Deli in Millington is sponsor for the events.
The Bunny Hop 5K begins at 3 p.m. Race participants will start at the head of the newly-developed cross country grass trail near the Casper Lake Boat Ramp on the eastern side of the park. The course then proceeds through sections of tree-lined trail and over rolling hills of open fields and ends where it started for a post-race party featuring music and refreshments. This race will be the inaugural event for the new trail, said race directors Wyndell Robertson and Pam Routh.
The Kids Fun Run Egg Hunt will begin at 4 p.m. at the same location. Children participating in the Fun Run Egg Hunt will be divided into two age categories − age 6 and under and ages 7 to 11.
Older children will walk/run and hunt for colorful plastic eggs filled with candy, small toys and gift coupons hidden along a 1/2-mile course. Younger children will follow on a ¼-mile course. Special prizes will be awarded for the Best Costume at the 5K and Kids’ Runs.
Children ages 11 and under must register to participate in the Kids Fun Run Egg Hunt. Cost is $8 per child. Kids Run Finishers will receive a medal, a pair of bunny ears to decorate at the post-race party and the egg hunt.
