No Cancellation Guarantee

Let's face it... since 2020.  One day we are "red" the next day we are "purple".    Our safety plan limits the number of people at the venue at any given time, keeps runners spaced out, and discourages any form of congregating.  We are optimistic that we will still be able to hold the event as scheduled on race day.

If we not allowed to do the live run, refunds will be available, however we will encourage runners to to switch to a virtual run and allow us to donate the difference to our designated beneficiary, The Poverello House  We have some cool swag that runners will enjoy whether they run live or Virtual.


  • Digital bibs and certificates for all runners.  
  • Chipped bibs will be available for those donating $10 or more to the Poverllo house at the time of registration. (Select the "Timed" race when registering)
  • Shirts and mugs are available as add-ons and are shipped direct from the printer.
  • Run our course in Clovis, or use the RaceJoy app to run your 5k anywhere.  
  • Hot Cocoa for participants who donate to Poverello House (while supplies last)
