5K and 30 Hour Fundraiser Run

Cedar Lake Camp & Retreat Center

Registration and Preparation Information
for Cedar Lake Camp’s 5K
and 30 Hour Fundraiser Run

 This year’s 5K Fun Run will be held in-person at Cedar Lake Camp on November 14, 2020. This portion of the race will begin at 8 am. The course will be, as usual, down the camp driveway then left onto Conatser Lane and back. The cost for this event is $25.00. Shirts may be additionally purchased at $10.00 each.

The cost for the 30-hour run is free but each participant will secure sponsors. There is no minimum or maximum for the number of sponsors but get as many as you can! (Yes, you can sponsor yourself as well.) Make a video or otherwise tell your friends and family you are raising money to help build a gym and pool for a non-profit children’s ministry. Give them your estimated total mileage so they can determine how many dollars PER MILE they want to sponsor. Keep up with your sponsorships. After the run, update everybody on your final mileage. They can mail a check made out to Cedar Lake Camp (not you personally) or donate online at www.cedarlakecamp.org indicating “Fun Run Donation.”

A virtual option exists for those who cannot attend in-person. Simply do either version of the run on your own and let us know.

Run as little or much as you want. YOU DON’T HAVE TO RUN THE WHOLE 30 HOURS! Take as many breaks as you want. Take a nap if you like. Quit whenever you want. Walking is totally okay as are RELAY teams. We’ll start at 6 am Saturday, November 14, and stay through noon on November 15. You’re welcome come set up Friday night and campout if you like. (If you plan to do this please let us know so we can better assist you.)

This is a no-frills race so bring your own hydration, nutrition, support staff, and sleeping arrangements. There’s plenty of space to set up tents. Our dining hall will be open for restrooms and eating areas. Park your vehicle along camp’s driveway for instant access to food and hydration. Your family can canoe, fish, and enjoy our beautiful 90-acre campus located just outside Livingston, TN in the foothills of the Cumberland Plateau. There are no awards except knowing you are doing a good thing by helping a non-profit. 🙂

The course is an out and back. We’ll start at camp’s dining hall and run down the road, and turn around heading back for a 3.7-mile lap. It’s about half pavement, half gravel with small rolling hills.

Headlamps and tail lights are required for night running. Bicycle pacers will be allowed after dark as long as they have lights as well. This is NOT a closed course, so watch out for cars, critters, and the boogie man. We are a Christian ministry to CHILDREN’S so please no alcohol, tobacco, or inappropriate things as there will be children present.

For those who don’t know, Cedar Lake is a nonprofit ministry dedicated to teaching the gospel of Jesus to the next generation, training staff, and serving churches through retreats.

Why are we doing this crazy fundraiser? Because we want to build a gym and swimming pool to better serve the children and churches who visit our camp. With a price tag of over 2 million bucks, we need all the help we can get.
