Forge Ponde Park 5k Recap

This is my second year running this race. They changed the name of the race this year. (Last year it was called the Harvest 5k. I don't have any pictures of this race, so let's just get into it.


Start Time:
9:30 AM

*Proceeds help the YMCA

This is a super organized family run. You can pick up your bibs at the YMCA the week before or at the park day of. It takes a minute for them to give you the bib and then you're ready to run. There are real bathrooms at the park as well which is always great! The volunteers were thankful to everyone who came out to run and made sure to tell you that. 

The course is an enclosed trail run. This is a great course through the woods at the park and then ends at the same spot that it begins. There are 2 water stops along the course as well.

Every runner gets a t-shirt. At the end of the race there are water, bagels, oranges, bananas, and this year there were frozen greek yogurt bars which were delicious!

Would I recommend this race?
 I would recommend this race. This is a great family run for the local YMCA. It's fun to see kids running and being so excited when they finish.
