FAQ

 

What races are being offered this year?
We are offering three different races: the 5K, the Fun Run/Walk, and the Virtual 5K. 

What times does each in-person race start?
The 5K will begin at 9:00 am and the Fun Run/Walk will begin immediately after the 5K. 

Where are the in-person races being held?
Both races begin and end in front of the Eden School, 2 Merwick Road, Princeton. 

What is the difference between the 5K and the Fun Run/Walk?
The 5K is a timed 3.1-mile course. The Fun Run/Walk is held on a separate course that is approximately 1 mile and not timed.


Is the in-person Fun Run/Walk timed?

No, individuals who run or walk the Fun Run/Walk will not be timed. If you'd like to receive an official race result, please register for the in-person 5K.

Can I register the day of the race?
Yes! There will be a same-day registration tent for individuals to register on the morning of the race. 

Can I walk the 5K?
Yes! You can walk the 5K course. We only ask that walkers who are participating in the in-person race finish the 3.1-mile course in under an hour. 

Will there be awards for the 5K?
Yes! Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female runners and the top 3 male and female runners in 10-year age categories, from 9 and under to 80 and over. Awards will also be given to the top 3 overall non-binary 5K finishers.

Virtual runners can sign up on the day of the race, but they must register by Sunday, September 8 to guarantee their shirt and goodie bag.

Can virtual 5K runners enter their time?
Yes! Virtual 5K runners can enter their time. More information on how to submit your results will be sent closer to race day. Please note, only in-person 5K runners are eligible for awards.

Can I bring my dog?
While we love our canine friends, dogs are NOT permitted at the in-person event.

What happens if it rains?
Our race is a rain-or-shine event! If there are dangerous weather conditions (such as thunder and lightning), we will share schedule changes and updates via email, social media, and our 5K race website.

Can I bring a stroller?
Yes! Families can run the 5K with jogging strollers. Families doing the Fun Run/Walk can bring strollers and wagons onto the course.
