Book It Run & Walk

Get ready for the 2nd Annual Book It Run & Walk on Saturday, April 11th! Everyone is welcome to take part by walking or running the course, whichever works better for you!

There are multiple routes for people of all abilities, including a 10K, 5K, and a 1K run/walk around the lake. There is also a free kids run that is perfect for the little ones. The 10K and 5K will have electronic chip timing that will be provided by Freedom High Athletic Department.

If you sign up for the run before April 4th, you will receive $5 off your admission price and a free T-shirt. The first 250 kids who register for the Kids Fun Run will receive a free book! Prices for the run are $35 for the 10K, $25 for the 5K, and $20 for the 1K run/walk. The Kids Fun Run is free to whoever wants to participate. Make sure to pick up your T-shirt and bib number at the Sports Authority in Brentwood on April 10th from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Friends of the Oakley Library is a group of citizens that are dedicated to the improvement and well-being of the Oakley Library for Oakley’s children, adults, and senior citizens. These goals are met through various programs that are offered throughout the year, including children’s events, book sales, teen programs, guest speakers, and of course, the Book Run! Proceeds from the run will help to build the new Oakley library.
