Description

The Westerwood 5k is here!


We’re so excited for a live race and event. This year, we have added a timed middle mile to our 5k, which is one more way to entertain and challenge you on Race Day! And a live band will be playing at Mile 1 and 2 of the 5k course. And our oncourse displays and inspirational signs might just make you slow down to take a closer look and a quick selfie. How cool is all that!


Take some time to read our pre-race information below. And forward this information to anyone you think might be interested in participating, registration is open through November 7!
