The Bunny Hop 5K & 1 Mile Family Fun Run is coming up this Saturday, March 25, 2017. The event will take place in Portsmouth, Va., with registration opening at 7 a.m. at the Portsmouth Pavilion.
This will be the 3rd year for the Bunny Hop event, with proceeds going towards the Children’s Museum of Virginia. Most of the earnings go towards maintaining the museum’s exhibits. Stephen Corving, the unofficial race director, and one of five board members that volunteer for the event said “we encourage kids to play with the exhibits, so you can imagine the work to maintain them.”
The family fun run begins at 8 a.m., and the 5K begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by fun activities for the children including face painting and balloon animals. Food will be provided by Chick-fil-a, and beer will be available for adults. The events will begin wrapping up at 11 a.m.
Stephen says to save your race bib to get free admission into the museum. The admission is good to be used one time between race day and April 15.
