The Lunartic (Lunar-tic) 5K run/walk is a nighttime event held on the eve of a full moon (or near full moon) along the beautiful shoreline of the Smithville Lake trails. The name was derived from the craziness of running under a full moon! This is a fun, family-friendly event. It is recommended to bring a headlamp or flashlight as it does get very dark under the tree canopy. This chip-timed race will be run point-to-point beginning at the Smoke and Davey trailhead and ending at Sailboat Cove. DO NOT park at the start. There is ample parking at the finish and runners will be shuttled to the start line via school bus. The last bus will leave for the starting line at 8:20pm. This year we will offer a unique finisher's medal which is one of three medals that, when put together, compose one sweet medal! These races are the Smithville trifecta and is new this year. You can also sign up for the Community in Action 5k, September 18 and Julia's Warriors Run for Hope, October 9 for medals 2 and 3.
The registration fee is $30 if you are registered before midnight August 20. Registration increases to $35 at packet pickup. T-shirts are only guaranteed to those registered before August 16. Because expenses are paid months in advance, there will be no refunds for weather or a forced cancellation by the county or state of Missouri.
