Father's Day Weekend

Beverly Shores, Indiana

Join us Saturday, June 18 (Father’s Day Weekend) for the 9th annual Necktie 5K
Walk & Run.  As the name implies, all participants are encouraged to wear
neckties during the run in recognition of fathers everywhere!  Prizes will be awarded
to participants with the most-creative neckties.  This is the perfect opportunity to
spend quality time with your dad and enjoy beautiful views of Lake Michigan.  

All pre-registered participants receive a commemorative race number and official
race shirt.  T-Shirts are short-sleeved and unisex-sized; available in Kid's Small -
Adult  XXL.  

The top three finishers in each age group will receive a necktie.  Also, awards will
be given to the first father-son and first father-daughter teams to run the race
together and cross the finish line together.

sandwiches) will be provided to participants after the run.

Immediately after the 5K awards ceremony, join us for 30 minutes of gentle yoga

not required.  The class is free.  It will be geared toward 'beginners'.  Everyone is

Our Course
The circular course features beautiful Indiana wetlands as well as dramatic lake
front views.  It also provides opportunities to spot wild-life along the way.  It is
mostly-flat, but there are two short (but relatively-steep) hills.  Two water stops will
be provided.
