Race Notes:

The 2024 Bolivar Strawberry Festival 5k takes place on Saturday, June 8th 2024, starting on Poplar Street, at Huntington Bank. The Finish Line is at the Village Hall Police Station, on Canal Street.

The 5k is a chip timed course that is mostly flat & fast, that takes place throughout the village during The Strawberry Festival. All proceeds from the 5K event, will benefit the Bolivar Main Street Association.

The 2024 Strawberry Festival is a three-day event that begins on June 6th that includes carnival rides, live entertainment, a strawberry eating contest, & more.

The Seedling Scamper Fun Run is held directly before the 5k. Participation is free. T-shirts are an add-on option. ($12 if received by May 18th).

These two events were brand new in 2023, and return this year, thanks to Haven Shala & Bolivar Runner’s Club!

Early Saturday morning the Seedling Scamper starts things off when kids take their turn at a fun un-timed run before the adults get started. Each child that finishes receives a ribbon or medal of their own.

The 5K route snakes around and through the village. Last year, Bolivar’s local cub scout pack waited at the finish line to hand out water and snacks, and we’re hopeful for their return!
