Come celebrate Easter at Lake Junaluska and join us for the annual Friends of the Lake 5K Run, Family Walk, and Kids Fun Run. The race is part of the Lake Junaluska's Saturday Easter celebration which includes an Easter egg hunt for all ages!

The Friends of the Lake 5K Run/ Family Walk is a charitable event to support the recreation opportunities of Lake Junaluska through the Friends of the Lake program. 100% of the proceeds for this event go to the annual maintenance and improvement of the recreation areas at Lake Junaluska which annually costs over $250,000. By participating in this year's Friends of the Lake 5K/ Family Walk, you will also become a member of the Friends of the Lake program.
