A Vegas-style run! The Poker Run is a lap race around Kellogg-Zaher Park: runners receive a card after completion of each lap, and the best hand wins! The 10K is 5 laps for the best 5-card stud hand; The 2.5M is 2 laps, and the best Blackjack hand wins. Runners may elect to “hit” by running additional laps and trying to improve their hand.

The Poker Run 12 Hour is a relaxed, customizable event that allows runners to select whatever distance they want, comprised of laps run on a 1.25-mile paved loop surrounding Kellogg-Zaher Park.  



Both events start and finish in east parking lot of Kellogg-Zaher Park, next to field #11.
