Thank you for showing interest in the 6th Annual Croswell Library: Parks & Paths 5K. This will be the fourth year running the new route beginning and ending at the Croswell Splash Pad.

This year's giveaway is a running hat (all out) and all participants will earn a custom medal featuring a variety of classic books.

Runners earn prizes for first, second, and third overall (male and female categories). Under 13, 13-19, 20-39, Master (40-59), and Grandmaster (60+) runners (male and female) can earn prizes for first place in their respective age groups. The fastest dogs (male and female (runners not dogs)) will also get a prize.

Any male or female who sets a new record will receive a free entry into next year's race. Last year, the course records were not broken. The men's record is 18:40 and is held by Garrett Jurges. The female record is 21:12 and is held by Daneille Fowler, breaking her own record from the previous year. 

When signing up 2 or more people, each runner will receive a $5 discount.

All proceeds from this event will benefit Aitkin Memorial District Library.


You will go through downtown Croswell's Commercial District, across the Black River, around neighborhood streets, into the Swinging Bridge Park, back over the Black River and return to the Splash Pad. There's a Strava segment in there too for those who are interested in that kind of thing. 



This year's giveaway will be a running hat. Hats are available for the first 75 people to sign up. Anyone who signs up after that, can choose from previous years' giveaways at the finish line. (image is mockup, final product may look slightly different).
