This Event Has Been Changed to A Virtual 5k

We are very sorry to announce that this race has been converted to a Virtual Event. 

Given the recent up tick in COVID-19 cases, we have received pressure from local health officials and sponsors not to risk staff, volunteers, and participant exposure to groups.  We agree with and respect these guidelines and are not able to host a live event given the current environment. 

Thank you very much for your support and we wish that we could have had the opportunity to see this race through as a live event.  Please make a selection below to indicate if you would like to receive a refund, or if you would still like to receive your race gear.
