Come celebrate the 5th Annual Liquid Gold 5k and bring awareness to breastfeeding as we kick off World Breastfeeding Week. The beautiful morning starts off at the University of Nevada, Knowledge Center. Our well marked course meanders through the University campus and after the race please stay for our great kids event. There will be a children's fair, kid friendly vendors, live music, post race snacks and drinks, and a great raffle! And don't forget The Big Latch On which will take place after the race too! Free Parking near the start line in Brian Whalen Parking Garage off of Virginia.
Liquid Gold 5k is sponsored by the Northern Nevada Breastfeeding Coalition, which is a subcommittee of the Maternal and Child Health Coalition. All running participants registering by July 21 receive a t shirt. Top prizes will be awarded to the overall winners and 1st stroller.
