Race Results
Freedom Park

The 5K course starts and finishes at Freedom Park. The course is relatively flat and winds through the park beginning at the lake, along the paved greenway, between the athletic fields and back to a finishing loop around the lake. It is all contained in the park with the exception of a short piece on a public sidewalk.

Registered participants must come by the AAPM Meeting registration area in the convention center on Monday, July 30, between 10:00am and 2:00pm, to sign a waiver and pick up a race number and t-shirt.

The GAMMEX 5K Run/Walk has been renamed the Dr. Charles Lescrenier Annual 5K Run/Walk in memory of Charles Lescrenier (1935-2011), founder and President of GAMMEX Inc. and one of the pioneers in the development of radiation quality assurance products.  Dr. Lescrenier will be remembered for his support of the medical physics profession and the AAPM. GAMMEX's longstanding support of the 5K Run/Walk began in 1981, the inaugural year of the event.  

Thanks once again to Gammex for sponsoring this event.

The deadline to sign up for the Dr. Charles Lescrenier Annual 5K Run/Walk sponsored by GAMMEX has passed. No on-site registration.
