Kick up some dirt with us and celebrate running at The Dirty Herd World Run Day 5k and 10k Fun Run! Run a 5k or a 10k loop that winds through the beautiful trails of Pretty Lake Camp. After the race, stick around for some fun, food and festivities!
All proceeds from the race go to help support Pretty Lake Camp and with a small portion benefiting the Gazelle Sports Foundation.
The 10k fun run starts at 9 am, and the 5k fun run/walk starts at 9:10 am. Please arrive early as we will start the run promptly. There is limited parking space, so if possible try to carpool to Pretty Lake Camp.

Pretty Lake. Beautiful Mission.
Since 1916, Pretty Lake Camp, a non-profit community organization, has provided a cost-free summer camp experience to over 50,000 at-risk youth from Kalamazoo County. Throughout the years, we have enriched the lives of thousands of youth by offering a safe, structured and encouraging environment in a natural setting. We accommodate over 800 children each summer.

Our focus is to assist in the development of campers by teaching life skills and helping campers cope with life’s challenges.
Pretty Lake’s mission is to provide adventure education and outdoor experiences that change lives and improve the community. We do this by:
There will be packet pick up at Gazelle Sports Kalamazoo on Friday, November 3rd from 4 to 7pm. If you are unable to pick up your packet at that time, you can also pick up your packet before the run at Pretty Lake Camp Sunday morning beginning at 8am.
