Race swag is sold out! Added new spots…

50 new spots just opened up but without shirts or medals! ❄️  We estimated shirt and medal orders based on the registration numbers we had at the beginning of January and are now officially sold out. 


We appreciate all of the support of #RomeoWinterFest5K & the Romeo Cross Country programs and wanted to open an option to run/walk with us on Saturday without receiving a shirt or medal. This of course means that the registration price will be discounted due to not receiving swag. You are still eligible for age group awards, will receive a bib for a timed 5K, can participate in the raffle, and can enjoy post-race food & drink with this registration option. 

 

Grab one of the remaining 50 spots below. 🏃 Thank you to everyone for your support!
