Packers, Bellin Health 'Back To Football' Events Kick Off Training Camp

Posted May 20, 2013

Bellin 5K run, new 1K kids run and movie night at Lambeau Field among highlights


The Green Bay Packers and Bellin Health have again partnered to bring fans a series of Back to Football events to kick off the Packers’ 2013 Training Camp.

The fourth annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field,’ is set for Saturday, July 27, 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.

Bellin Health will be contributing its race expertise to the event through logistical and medical support. The organization’s 10K race, the Bellin Run, is among the nation’s most popular races. This year’s Bellin Run will mark the 37th running of the 10K race.

All participants will receive a Packers 5K Run T-shirt, a logoed bag, and a bib number and timing chip. 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 Monday, May 20, 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 7, at Astor Park in Green Bay. Early registration is encouraged. After July 14, registration fees will increase to $30 and $20, respectively.

The Packers are partnering with local charities to raise money with the event. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross, Volunteer Center of Green Bay and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

WIXX 101 is serving as the radio partner for the event.

New this year, Back to Football will include the 1K Kids Run, presented by WPS Health Insurance. Kids 10 years old and younger will have the opportunity to run a Lambeau Lap on Friday, July 26, at 6 p.m. Registration for the Kids Run is $10 and all participants will receive a Packers 1K Run t-shirt, a logoed bag and a participant medal.

Movie Night at Lambeau Field will return this year on Friday, July 26. At 7:30 p.m., following the 1K Kids Run, Disney’s Wreck it Ralph will be shown on the TundraVision. The event is free and open to the public, and concessions will be available throughout the movie.

The Back to Football Campaign is an effort supported by the Green Bay Packers and Bellin Health, which celebrates the upcoming football season. The campaign presents the 5K Run, the 1K Kids Run, Movie Night at Lambeau Field, training camp, Packers Family Night and the team’s two home preseason games. Family Night is set for Aug. 3, and home preseason games are scheduled for Aug. 9 against the Arizona Cardinals and Aug. 23 against the Seattle Seahawks.
