After July 9, registration will increase to $35 for adults

Registration for the eighth annual ‘5K Run at Lambeau Field’ will increase by $5 for both adults and children after July 9. Interested participants are encouraged to register by mail or online at before the deadline to receive a discounted rate of $30 for adults and $20 for children (12 and younger).

After July 9, registration fees will increase to $35 for adults and $25 for children. Mail-in registration forms are available online and in-person at Lambeau Field.

The event, presented by the Packers and Bellin Health, is a run/walk set for 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 22.

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 bib number and a timing chip along with a Packers’ 5K Run t-shirt and a logoed bag. In addition, photos will be taken on the course and will be available at no cost on the Packers 5K Run website.

New this year, all participants that cross the finish line also will automatically qualify for a chance to win a variety of Packers prizes. More than 20 participants will be selected to win prizes such as tickets to a 2017 Packers home game and Packers Family Night, autographed merchandise, Packers Pro Shop and 1919 Kitchen & Tap gift cards, and green and gold Brewers caps from the “Pack at the Park” themed Brewers game on June 21.

Former Packers players Dexter McNabb, Bill Schroeder and Tony Fisher also will take part in the event by running the 5K route with participants.

Back for a fifth year, Back to Football includes the 1K Kids Run, presented by Edvest. Kids 10 years old and younger will have the opportunity to run a “Lambeau Lap” on Friday, July 21, 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.

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

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

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, training camp, Packers Family Night and the team’s two home preseason games. Family Night is set for Aug. 5, and home preseason games are scheduled for Aug. 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles and Aug. 31 against the Los Angeles Rams.
