Van Buren Popcorn Festival Kernel Klassic 5K
Originating in 1987, the objective was to encourage participation in a healthy activity while promoting the Van Buren Popcorn Festival. The Kernel Klassic has experienced increased attendance since the first event. The Van Buren Popcorn Festival Committee who volunteer to conduct the event appreciate your involvement and look forward to seeing you again this year!
Starting line is located on Indiana State Road 5 in front of the Van Buren Library.
The course is well marked and the surface is flat and paved. We ensure your safety with traffic control and water stations. The finish line is in front of the Popcorn Festival Grandstand where there will be fruit and drinks available to all participants.
