    4th annual Antioch Rotary Club Bunny Hop 5k. I’ve wanted to run this race for awhile , but something always conflicted with it. This race is run in the Dow Wetlands. There are nice views of the Delta and the Dow Wetlands. There is a .75 mile walk to the start/finish line from the Antioch Marina. You walk back after you finish. It’s a nice walk along a boardwalk where you get to the wetlands up close. There is plenty of free parking at the Marina. The course itself is on packed dirt, some gravel, a small amount of pavement, and some grassy area. There is one aid station. This race uses chip timing. New for this year were nice unisex tech tees and a cute medal. Previously the shirts were cotton and you got a ribbon for finishing.
    The Antioch Rotary Club races money from this race for local athletic scholarships. This year, they raised $12,000.
    There was a pancake breakfast provided at the Antioch Marina.
    All in all a nice local race that I would run again.

    Growing every year, this race sold out with 400 participants in 2018. It’s a bit of a walk from the ample parking area to the start of the race, but along a boardwalk into the wetlands. The school band entertained while we gathered (and used the porta-potty’s) before the race start. Then we were off on the dirt and gravel roads and trails, around beaver ponds, and past another band. There is some good competition, but still a fast course with medals for age groups for some of us regular runners.
    There is a small post race festival, perfect for families with the Easter bunny, face painting, and bunny hop, even an egg hunt, before the awards celebration. Perfect for the whole family.
