We continue to work out our race plans with guidance from the Kent County Health Department and Metro Health Sports Medicine which are designed to provide you with a safe experience. We are excited to provide our community with an in-person race experience. Be sure to read our plans below before you register. 

We will have outdoor, packet pick-up and registration at Legacy Christian School's soccer field. If you are competing for prize money then your gun time will be your official time.  The gun for the 5k running portion will start at 8:30am.  Our start and finish lines are in a common spot.  The start area will be spread out by paces.  Water stations will be set up on the course.  If you are not comfortable with taking water, you are welcome to carry your own. Post race refreshments will be pre-packaged grab and go set up. 

We are offering a virtual option for those who are not able to participate in person, make sure to select "view all" and scroll all the way down to locate it as a registration option.  Virtual participants will not be eligible for awards but will receive their race shirts and bibs.

More 2023 Details:

The t-shirt order will be placed on May 29.  Athletes registering after May 29 will not be guaranteed a race shirt or preferred size.  A limited quantity will be available on race day on a first come, first serve basis. 

The Junior Jog and Steeplechase will be held on the Legacy Christian School's soccer field as always, this year we will have a rolling start beginning at 10:15 am-10:45am.  There will be a staging area and we will start smaller groups in waves.
