Virtual One-Mile Fun Run

Virtual 5K Raccoon Run





From the Race Director:

In response to recent updates regarding COVID-19, Lakeside Chautauqua has decided to modify this year’s Annual Raccoon Run and One-Mile Fun Run to VIRTUAL ONLY races.
What does this mean? How does a virtual race work? 
A virtual race allows participants to complete their 5k or One-Mile Fun Run from any location. You can run from your house or lake cottage, from a treadmill in the Magruder Fitness Room, from a neighborhood park, state park, or anywhere in the world.
Because of the varied courses, unfortunately, there will be no trophies and no award ceremony this year.
However, all participants will receive a T-shirt. (Extra shirts may be ordered for $10 each.) These will be mailed to you or can be picked up at the Lakeside Administration Front Office once they become available.
All runs must be completed between July 26 and August 1. Registration has been extended through August 1 and includes the price of a T-shirt. Price is $30/person for 5k Raccoon Run and $20/person for One-Mile Fun Run.
You may still share your run time as early as July 26 up through August 1.

To submit your time, please go to and search “Raccoon Run.”

We regret not having the run in-person, particularly since this would have been our 40th run. Rest assured, we will properly celebrate our run’s 40th anniversary next year and look forward to seeing you then!
In the meantime, we encourage you to share photos of yourself and your family running near your homes, neighborhood parks, and home treadmills. We want to spread your love of healthy exercise with the entire Lakeside Family.
Thank you for your continued support of Lakeside Chautauqua’s Raccoon Run!



Registration for the 5k Raccoon Run (onsite and virtual) is $30/person.  Registration for the One-Mile Fun Run (onsite or virtual) is $20/person. 


What if I planned on registering on-site?
You may still register on-site, as originally planned, on Sunday, July 26, outside of Hoover from 7-10a.m. However, there will be no marked race course and no start time. If you choose to run that day in Lakeside, you must heed all COVID-19 protocols and practice safe social distancing.
If you have questions or concerns, please email
