Bunny Palooza 5K/10K run/walk set for April 20


The Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF) recently announced that the sixth annual Bunny Palooza will take place on Saturday, April 20, the Saturday morning before Easter.

Bunny Palooza offers three options in which to participate: a 10K run, 5K run/walk or a combination 10K and 5K. Registration for the 10K run costs $35, for the Bunny Palooza 5K Run the cost is $30, and registration for the combination costs $40. Online registration is open until April 17 at noon.

The event will be chip-timed by Nova, featuring real-time results posted on large-screen monitors. Bunny Palooza offers recognition for winners — overall, masters and age-group medals and special top finisher, and features a post-race party at Mango’s on the boardwalk in Bethany Beach, with beer provided by NKS distributors.

The first 200 10K finishers will receive finisher medals. All runners who register by March 31 are guaranteed a commemorative race shirt. Race packets may be picked up at Mango’s on April 19 between noon and 3 p.m., and on-site registration will be available on Saturday, April 20, at 7:15 a.m. if the race has not sold out. Registration for Bunny Palooza is online at Bunnypaloozarun.com.

The races begin on Parkwood Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in downtown Bethany Beach and will end on the Bethany Beach boardwalk. The 10K begins at 9 a.m., the 5K at 8 a.m., and the combination 5K/10K begins at 8 a.m., with races to run concurrently.

All proceeds benefit the QRCF’s scholarship and grant programs. Proceeds from Bunny Palooza benefit the individuals, groups, clubs and organizations that are served by the QRCF.

Local students can find more information or apply online at www.qrcf.org. The deadline to apply is April 19.
