The Belmont School Funds advisory board will host a 5K Fun Run/Walk on Friday evening, September 18, 2015.  This inaugural event is being held in conjunction with the 101st Annual Belmont School Fair.

The site of the start of this new event is Bond Park, Park Street, Belmont.  On-site registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the day of the event or participants may pre-register using the online form available on the Belmont Schools website (  Cost, which includes a t-shirt for those registered by September 4, is $15 for students (18 or under) and $30 for adults.

Co-organizer Kim Schmelz noted, “The route will utilize the Pecatonica Trail.  Participants will run or walk west from Bond Park, passing under US Hwy 151 before returning, on the same trail, to Bond Park.  We welcome participants of all levels.  Our hope is that we get a great response to this inaugural fun run/walk.  We are excited to provide an opportunity for all to partake in a new fair weekend event and to take steps to invest in our children!”

The 5K Fun Run/Walk is an initiative of the Belmont School Funds.  All proceeds will benefit the Belmont Excellence in Education and Belmont Scholarship Endowment Funds which are components of the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin.
