The race originated in 1985 as the Intercity 10K. After two years the race was changed to a 5 mile run. For years, the 5 mile run was a little longer than 5 miles. In 1993, the Lake Run club began organizing the event and made the 5 mile course accurate. The race has grown to approximately 500 runners.

Shuttle service is available between the Corn Crib and Miller Park.  Prior to the race, buses will leave the Corn Crib beginning at 5:45 and ending at 6:15.  After the race concludes, buses will leave the Corn Crib up through the Awards Ceremony.
