Runners and joggers can register early and receive a 50-percent discount for the Almost 5K Poker Fun Run & Walk on Aug. 11, part of the second annual AuburnFest.

The Friday night run begins at 7 at Les Gove Park. Auburn Sports Physical Therapy and BECU are sponsoring the event.

The run-walk, which will take participants five loops around the park, is “almost” a 5K (short by 1,138 feet). For each lap around the loop, participants will stop, draw a card and try to get the best poker hand with the five cards drawn. Prizes will be awarded for the top poker hand in each age category (awarded from the stage at 8:30 p.m.).

The route is flat, easy and enjoyable for all ages and abilities. All registrants will receive a dri-fit shirt.

The run-walk will be part of the City of Auburn’s Summer Sounds & Cinema concert and outdoor movie event that same evening at the park. The night will consist of two musical performances on the main stage, Eric Ode at 6 p.m. and Rain City Time Machine at 7. The movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (PG-13), will start at dusk.

Also offered at the event will be food concessions/food trucks, a beer garden, inflatable rides and an ArtRageous hands-on art activity.

Registration fee is $10 for those who enter by Friday, July 28.

Online registration is available at Enter code: FAMILY5K at checkout to receive your discount.

Early registration fee is $20 by July 30; $23 (July 31-Aug. 9); and $25 on-site on race night (begins at 5:30).
