The 16th Annual Loop the Lake 5K and Kids' Fun Runs is a fundraiser for the Tokay High School Cross Country Team in Lodi, CA. The race is run on one of our home cross country courses at beautiful Oak Grove Park in Stockton. The race begins on the grass under huge oak trees and then winds through an undeveloped oak grove on dirt trails with a short jaunt on a sidewalk. All participants will qualify for fantastic raffle prizes which will be ready for winners to pick up right after crossing the finish line. Then stay and enjoy Coach Harty's famous banana pancakes (we'll make them without banana too)! Kids 12 and under are encouraged to race in various short races before the 5K start. Everyone who registers gets a free drawstring bag, pancake breakfast and a chance to win a raffle prize.
This event will support the Tokay Cross Country Team pay for Invitational races, transportation, uniforms and all the things that are needed to be successful high school athletes. The entire team thanks you for your participation in our fundraiser and we pledge to make it a great day for you!
