With Green Bay Packers fans looking forward to the release of the 2022 NFL schedule this week, the Packers and Bellin Health announced they have again partnered to bring fans a series of Back to Football events to kick off the Packers' 2022 Training Camp.
One such event, the 13th annual '5K Run/Walk at Lambeau Field,' is set for Saturday, July 16, 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 Tech shirt 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 in Lot 7 of Lambeau Field.
Registration, which is $30 for adults and $20 for children (age 12 and younger), is available online at https://www.packers.com/fans/packers-5k. Runners can also register at the Bellin Run Expo on Friday, June 10, at Astor Park in Green Bay. Early registration is encouraged. After July 3, 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 Volunteer Center of Brown County, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Preble High School Music/Athletics.
Back to Football also includes the Packers 1K Kids Run presented by Polaris. Kids 10 years old and younger will have the opportunity to run a Lambeau Lap on Friday, July 15, at 6:30 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. Registration is available at https://www.packers.com/fans/packers-1k-kids-run.
More details regarding Back to Football events, including Packers Family Night, and the full training camp schedule, will be announced at a later date.
