Summer Splash 5K


Coming June 25, Cookeville will host a unique style 5K to benefit local cancer patients. The Summer Splash 5k will offer racers the opportunity to cool off along the course at “drenching stations” and “misting stations.” Volunteers at drenching stations will be prepared for racers with buckets of water, water-guns, hoses and more. Run or walk, participants will get wet at this 5k.  Those racers that do not want to get as wet may opt to go through gentler “misting stations” and steer clear of drenching stations. 


Presented by sponsor L.G. Puckett, DDS, the Summer Splash 5K will include entertainment before and after the race in Dogwood Park. Live music and concessions will be offered from 5:00-8:00 pm in Dogwood Park. The race will begin at 6:00 p.m. with packet pickup and registration at 5:30.  Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the music, even if they are not participating in the race. Concessions will be available in the park, and Backroom Bistro will have a food truck on-site.


Proceeds from the Summer Splash 5K will go toward the Cancer Care Fund at Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation in honor and memory of Sarah Alice Bagci. The Cancer Care Fund provides assistance to local cancer patients who struggle with necessities while dealing with a cancer diagnosis.  


Registration for one runner is $25 until June 4, after it is $35. Registration for a team of four before June 4 is $80, after it is $120.
