The fifth annual ‘5K Run/Walk at Lambeau Field,’ is set for Saturday, July 26, at 6:30 p.m.
The computer-timed run is highlighted by a neighborhood route that ultimately takes participants into Lambeau Field and around the famed gridiron. The event has a special finish line – the Packers’ ‘G’ painted on turf located in the parking lot.
All participants will receive a Packers 5K Run T-shirt, a logoed bag, and a bib number and timing chip. To celebrate the race’s fifth anniversary, all participants will receive a commemorative medal. In addition, photos will be taken on the course and will be available at no cost on the Packers 5K Run website.
Packers-themed awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group. An awards ceremony will take place following the conclusion of the race.
Registration, which is $25 for adults and $15 for children (12 and younger), will be available online beginning Friday, May 23, at www.packers.com/5k. Mail-in registration is also an option, with forms available online and in person at Lambeau Field. Runners can also register at the Bellin Run Expo on Friday, June 13, at Astor Park in Green Bay. Early registration is encouraged. After July 13, registration fees will increase to $30 and $20, respectively.
Packers.com, a popular portal for Packers fans and one of the top five visited sites among NFL teams, unveiled on Thursday a refreshed homepage with a new look and updated design.
The new homepage still includes the rotating features in the main centerpiece window, flanked on the right by the latest editions of the popular “Ask Vic” daily column.
The primary changes are below the centerpiece, where there’s now an easy-to-read thumbnail menu of the latest videos on the packers.com, which has by far the most Packers-related video content on the internet, including live-streaming press conferences, locker room interviews and game highlights.
Below that are more news headlines that may have already rotated out of the centerpiece, plus a window highlighting the latest packers.com blog entries. Scroll down further, and a thumbnail menu of the latest photo galleries, plus the Hot Topics window, are also included.
The homepage re-design is intended to give packers.com a cleaner look, with graphics and headlines easier to find. The goal remains to populate the site with the latest news, analysis, videos and photos of the Packers on a daily basis.
