7th Annual Beat Beethoven 5k for the Kennett Symphony
Saturday, June 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
DAH DAH DAH DAH!
Take your classical music “in stride” and come out to support the Kennett Symphony and see if you can BEAT BEETHOVEN!! This is a fun race for serious runners as well as beginners and families. The race will start with the downbeat of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony (DAH, DAH, DAH DAH!!). Your goal is to finish the 5K before the Symphony finishes playing (over 30-minutes). Beethoven himself runs the race every year and always has finished with time to spare…. think you can beat him?! Along with the 5K run, there’s 1-mile walk, and a Kid’s Fun-Dash (6-under) – new this year!
