Beat Beethoven 5K

6th Annual Beat Beethoven 5K Run/1Mile Walk

Sunday, June 10, 2018
Anson B. Nixon Park, Kennett Square, PA


Take your classical music “in stride” and come out to support the Kennett Symphony and see if you can BEAT BEETHOVEN! This is a fun race for serious runners as well as beginners and families. The race will start with the downbeat of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony (DAH, DAH, DAH DAH!!). Your goal is to finish the 5K before the Symphony finishes playing.  Beethoven himself runs the race every year and has always finished with time to spare…. think you can beat him?!

The 5K course is a mix of trails and paved areas. The trails and paths wander along a stream and through picturesque shaded spots as well as some open areas. Overall the course elevation is easy-moderate with no severe incline areas.

Water will be available on the course and following the race. There will be some snacks and refreshments provided by sponsors at the conclusion of the race.

Prizes: $200 cash for overall male & female runner in the 5K!  Prizes for 1st male/female in age groups; 9 Under,10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+

Pre-registrants for the 5K and Walk will receive a T-Shirt while supplies last. Must be registered by May 27th.
