Annual Montpelier 5K Run, Kids’ Fun Run and Walk

Attention Montpelier runners and walkers!  It is time to gear up for the 2023 edition of the Montpelier 5K run and walk, happening on Saturday, May 13th, 2023. Registration opens on Feb 24th, 2023. 

The 5K starts and ends at the Montpelier Community parking lot.  The course winds through several of our community streets and offers some nice uphills to get your heart rate up a bit, and a few downhills to quicken your pace.

Two events will be held: a free kids’ fun run (12 and under), and the 5K walk and run open to everyone.  Online registration for the 5K is $10 per person.   For registration details, see the Montpelier Online website ( or search for the event on the website (

A water stop, post-race munchies, and prizes for top finishers, and special awards will be given.

This year, we have partnered with the Sunflower Striders to offer an 8-week training program specific to our 5K.  The program is led by a certified running coach and consists of a combination of a personalized training plan, and weekly group runs within the neighborhood to get us in shape in a safe and positive fashion.
