Description

Join us on Saturday, July 25th at the DeWitt 5k Cross Country Course for The Comeback Kid 5k.  This race will feature an open/flexible start line from 8am to 10am, finishers medals and age group awards! 

How does the open/flexible start line work? Start the race any time between 8 am and 10 am. There will be no crowded mass start. Keep an eye on the start line and begin your race when it is free of other participants. No more than 5 people will start at a time.  The start line will be wide, and the space is very open to allow for proper social distancing. You do not have to feel rushed to get to the starting line. Start your race when you are ready. Timing does not start until you cross the timing mats.
