The Olpe Downhome Fun Run/Walk roughly follows the disc golf course around the beautiful Olpe Jones Lake, located just one mile southwest of Olpe. The route is over some roadway, through some grass and across bridges over inlets to the lake. The course is a beautiful way to start your day with fresh air, peaceful surroundings and exercise. This event is included in the Emporia Recreation Super Series.
Event details and schedule
The Olpe Downhome Fun Run/Walk will start and end near the shelter house on the east side of the Olpe Jones Lake. Participants can check in at the shelter house after 7:00 a.m. and the 5K run around the lake starts at 7:30 a.m. Portions of the course will be through grass so shoes will get wet with dew. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 males and top 3 females in each age bracket.
Entry fee is $20.00 if received by July 10th and includes a Olpe Downhome T-Shirt. After July 10th, the entry fee is $25.00.
