Packers, Bellin Health Back to Football events kick off training camp

Posted May 8, 2017

Bellin 5K Run and 1K Kids Run 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’ 2017 Training Camp.

The eighth annual ‘5K Run/Walk at Lambeau Field,’ is set for Saturday, July 22, at 8 a.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. 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 $30 for adults and $20 for children (12 and younger), will be available online beginning Monday, May 8, 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 9, at Astor Park in Green Bay. Early registration is encouraged. After July 9, registration fees will increase to $35 and $25, respectively.

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

Back to Football also includes the Packers 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.

More details regarding Back to Football events, including Packers Family Night, and the full training camp schedule will be announced at a later date.
