Welcome to the
2024 Panther Prowl 5K
Calling all runners and walkers! The Panther Prowl 5K is an open charity run/walk event for individual runners and walkers. Proceeds from this event help us to fund scholarships for SVE seniors pursuing college, university, and technical school education. Thanks to the tremendous generosity and continued support from our scholarship partners, sponsors, and donors, we have raised over $50,000 in scholarship funds.
The Panther Prowl 5K is held on the first Saturday in August at Vergason Technology, Inc. in Van Etten. This is our fastest-growing event! Join us and be part of the action!
Walkers – get moving, get grooving! We have a well-marked, 1.9 mile out and back loop for our walkers. Whether you power walk or prefer to stroll, this is a perfect event for the entire family. Walkers are the first to cross the start line at 8:00 a.m. All participants in the walk receive a finish-line certificate. Tasty refreshments and beverages await you as you complete the course. Walk for a happy life and a happy you!
Runners – sweat now, shine later! The race is a flat, fast, measured course and features a chipped timing start/finish format. Trophies are given to the top two overall male and female finishers. Medals are awarded to the first, second, and third place runners of each age group. Post-race snacks and refreshments are provided. Run fast, stay strong, have fun!
Early registration guarantees a limited-edition Panther Prowl 5K t-shirt; on-site registrants receive shirts while supplies last. Students: Look for the student discount on the registration page.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, August 3, 2024 and join this fun-filled event!
