Running with Raccoons 5K

Running with Raccoons 5K

Sunday, April 8, 3pm

Make friends, stay fit, and support a good cause in Camp Tecumseh’s third annual Running with Raccoons 5K run/walk on Sunday, April 8th. With over 300 people registered in 2016, and over 450 people registered in 2017, it’s one of the region’s most popular races. Whether you’re a serious runner, or just want to come back to Camp, we hope you’ll join us for a festive afternoon as we raise money to benefit Camp Tecumseh’s campership fund.  A huge part of the Tecumseh culture is building relationships and sharing love with our family, friends, and neighbors. We encourage you to invite someone to join you for the 5K!

Course Map

The 5K course starts in Lake Village in the pioneer settlement and ends at Kampen lodge. Snaking down Lake road, through the River Village, the pine forest and back along the Lake Village cabins, few races offer this kind of scenery.

Our sponsors help make this race possible

Without the generous support from our race sponsors, we wouldn’t be able to host our Running with Raccoons 5K. Their support not only provides race day materials,  but financial support so more kids can experience the transformational power of a Camp Tecumseh experience. Thank you. If you’d like to learn more about being a sponsor for our Running with Raccoons 5K, contact Kyle Linback.
