    • 1st Place Overall in the Men’s & Women’s divisions
    • 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place in each of the Men’s & Women’s age divisions
    • Bob Brucken Honorary Award

Started in 2023, the Bob Brucken Honorary Award is given to the oldest participant finishing the 5K Raccoon Run. The award, named after longtime Lakesider Bob Brucken, is in recognition of his leadership in promoting this race. Brucken has run the 5K since its inception, earning medals several times. In fact, some years, Brucken finished the race pushing a neighbor in a wheelchair. He can be seen jogging the Lakeside streets and nature trail all summer, often times with members of his family trailing alongside. His love of running, the Raccoon Run and Lakeside is contagious.
