Participant Information

You will be able to pick up your Girl Scout cookies, if you ordered some when you registered, at packet pickup.  You will be able to exchange your shirt for a different size out of the leftover shirts in the packet pickup area after the race.

Race day parking will be in the main parking lot for the shopping center near the start/finish on Bass Pro Drive.

The 5K will start at 8am and follow a course that we will share soon. The Kids Run will be after the 5K at approximately 9:15am.  Please do not bring your dog to participate in the race.  We like dogs but our insurer doesn't like the tripping hazard created by their leashes.  You can run with strollers but we would ask you to start towards the back to reduce congestion.  If it is determined that it is not safe to run due to weather, there will be no refunds or transfers.

You can check your results after the race by holding the camera on your smart phone over the QR code on your bib number to get your results!   A link to race photos will be posted to the website and emailed out after the race.  Age group awards will be available for pick up at the race but will not be mailed out.

Thanks again for signing up and we look forward to seeing you at the race!

Kids Run

Sign your kids up for the Kids Run after the 5K!  Kids run participants receive a participant shirt and finishers medal and run in waves, based on their age, ranging from approximately 50-200 yards.


We rely on the help of volunteers to make the event a success and have a variety of options available for those who would like to help out.  Check them out and sign up HERE if you can help!
