Clean off those bunny ears and running shoes and get ready for the 2023 Hippity Hop 5K! This year's race is on April 8, 2023 and will include a 5K run/walk, Easter Egg Hunt, children's activities, and you-know-who...THE EASTER BUNNY! The 7th annual event will take place again at Potter Park Zoo. All registered participants get FREE entry into the zoo!! The 5K run/walk will start and finish near the entrance of the zoo and will go along the scenic Lansing River Trail. All proceeds go to youth and families in Ingham County. The Child Benefit Fund has been assisting at-risk families in Ingham County for over 40 years, providing funding for clothing, sports fees and equipment, emergency needs, extra-curricular activities, and holiday gifts for approximately 250-300 children per year. Registration will close at midnight on April 7, 2023, and we will not be taking any race-day registrations. 

5K Run/Walk: The 5K is chip-timed on a beautiful, scenic, and accurate course along the Lansing River Trail. All participants will receive a t-shirt and finisher's medal. The race will have an open start time from 11:00 AM until 11:15 AM for convenience. If you are looking for a more competitive race, please be at the start line at 10:55 AM. Otherwise, you can start the race at your leisure.
