Registration is at John F. Kennedy Drive & 36th Avenue.

* Please note this is a VOLUNTEERS ONLY race. *

SFRP has required our two Spreckels Lake races to be “members only” (Feb 23 and Sept 6). Non-members who appear at the registration table will not be allowed to run but will be encouraged to sign up as members ($23 for a 5K is still a bargain!) It is critical for the DSE to adhere to SFRP’s restrictions in order to maintain a good working relationship with them as we ask for over 25 permits/year from this agency.

In an attempt to encourage more volunteerism, the Board also decided that the Sept 6 Spreckels Lake race will be a “volunteer-only” race, for members who have accrued at least one volunteer point. Please check our website for volunteer opportunities.

  • Start/Finish Location: Kennedy Drive/36th Avenue near Spreckles Lake
  • 5K Course Description: Run westbound on Kennedy Dr, left onto Chain of Lakes Dr, left onto MLK Jr. Dr, left onto Transverse Dr, left onto Kennedy Dr to finish near Spreckles Lake.
