Just you wait, because this isn't your ol' run-of-the-mill 5k. Runners have to estimate their finishing time prior to the start; we don't allow time keeping devices of any kind. The top 5 people that come closest to their estimate win. So just because you're fast doesn't mean you'll win this one.
The race is FREE and a fundraiser for the Food Bank for Larimer County. All are welcome to participate in the run, but you have to donate to be eligible for the raffle (which is where the real action is).
This year, we'll have 3 blocks of up to 75 registrants - 8-8:30a, 9-9:30a, 10-10:30a. You can pick whichever block you want, and start anytime within that block (as long as no more than 10 folks are lining up at once). Each group of 10 will alternate which direction (east/westbound) they head on the Spring Creek Trail.
The event is chip timed. If you have chips from the FCRC Tortoise & Hare series, please bring them. If not, we'll have them for you race morning (and please give them back after).
This is a PREDICTION run. Enter the time you think you'll run on your registration form. NO WATCHES or timepieces of any sort allowed during the run. We encourage you to rat out your fellow runners!
All who donate to the Food Bank receive a ticket for our famous raffle, where we have prize packs from many local businesses and restaurants, race entries, and much more! Our biggest giveaway of the year! This year's raffle will be in the afternoon, conducted via Facebook Live!
We are STRONGLY encouraging monetary donations this year, which you can make right on your registration form. Cash $$$ helps the most. The Food Bank has resources to buy products at much, much deeper discounts than any of us could buy. The $5 you spend on a 2 jars of PB could be turned into 10 jars through the Food Banks sources.
Every entrant will also receive a gift card for a free Lamar’s coffee & donuts.
This is a free event so come join the community and test out your legs for the upcoming turkey day races.
