The Bob Brucken Honorary Award
The Bob Brucken Honorary Award will be 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 the annual 5K in Lakeside. Brucken has run the race since its inception, earning medals several times. In fact, some years, he finished the race pushing a neighbor in a wheelchair. Brucken can be seen jogging the streets of Lakeside and the nature trail all summer, oftentimes with members of his family trailing alongside. His love of running, the Raccoon Run and Lakeside is contagious. Lakeside Chautauqua is privileged to honor Bob Brucken with this new Raccoon Run tradition during our 150th Anniversary.
