First run in 1992 and sponsored by the Lakeview Fitness & Sports Center, the Links to Lake 5K holds the distinction of being the only point-to-point race on the Grand Prix circuit. This course is scenic and very fast, with a 200 ft. drop in elevation from the golf course to the lake. The course attracts many runners with expectations of setting PRs. Vans transport runners from the finish and back to Lakeview for post-race refreshments. The awards presentation includes 100 customized awards courtesy of Mountaineer Corner and random prize drawings!
