New Chipper Challenge

New Virtual Race

Can't make it on race day, please try our 2018 Superhero Virtual Race.  Participants can walk or run a 5K or 10K from anywhere in the world.  All participants will receive a medal and, if registered by 8/28/2018, participants will receive the official 5K/10K race apparel.


The Kids Fun Run, 5K Walk/Run, & 10K Run return for a third year beginning at 8am for the fun run and 8:20 am for the 5K & 10K. 

Individuals may choose to register for both the 5K/10K and the Chipper Challenge for $40, and participants may decide to finish the Chipper Challenge prior or after the races.
