Walkers, joggers, and runners of all ages will take to the streets of Lakeside on Sunday, July 21 for the 44th Annual 5k Raccoon Run and One-Mile Fun Run.

The Bob Brucken Honorary Award

The Bob Brucken Honorary Award will be given each year to the oldest participant finishing the Lakeside Raccoon Run. The award, named after longtime Lakesider Bob Brucken is in recognition of his leadership in promoting Lakeside’s Annual 5k. Bob has run the race since the inception of the race, earning medals several times. In fact, some years, Bob finished the race pushing a neighbor in a wheelchair! Bob can be seen jogging the Lakeside streets and nature trail all summer, often times with members of his family trailing alongside. His love of running, the Raccoon Run, and Lakeside is contagious. Lakeside Chautauqua is privileged to honor Bob Brucken with this new Raccoon Run tradition during our 150th Anniversary year. 

Admission and  Parking Fees are not included in this registration.  A Complimentary Recreation Event Pass is available from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. on the day of the event for registrants only and can be obtained at the 5th Street and South Street gates only.  This pass does not allow entry into the Grindley Aquatics and Wellness Campus Pool or Entertainment in Hoover Auditorium.
