PrairieFest 5K & One Mile

June 16, 8:30 am - 9:30 am

Run through Oswego’s friendly neighborhoods during the 2019 PrairieFest 5K! This 3.1-mile USATF certified course is well marked with split times at every mile and chip timing. Awards for first through third place finishers in each age group. The One Mile Prairie Dog Jog race begins directly following the 5K start at the Prairie Point walking path. Competitive runners start at the front of the pack, and those with pets start directly behind. All dogs must be on a leash and current with their shots.
