Ten Years supporting community fun and fitness!

The TKPK5K is a fun, family-oriented community event that features a series of races including a chip-timed 5k (run or walk), a 1-mile fun run and 1/4 mile youth run. Proceeds from the event fund health, fitness and bike and pedestrian safety activities at five local schools: Takoma Park Elementary, Piney Branch Elementary, East Silver Spring Elementary, Rolling Terrace Elementary and Takoma Park Middle.  The eleventh annual Takoma Park Safe Routes to School 5K will be held on Sunday, May3, 2020 in Takoma Park, MD.
