Live (in-person) Race FAQs

How can I join you LIVE in person? 

You will be able to join us LIVE and in person on race day, Saturday, July 3, if you register for one of the “live” events - LIVE 5K, Freedom Walk or Kids Fun Run.  Registration is set to close on July 1, or EARLIER if we reach capacity or gathering limits reduce - sign up early to guarantee your spot. If you register for our virtual event please do not join us in person on race day. We wish this situation was different, but need to plan for proper social distancing and crowd control to keep everyone safe. 

Can I register for the race THE DAY OF? 

We hope to be able to offer on-site registration, however, we are still evaluating this in light of COVID-19 restrictions. Please check back for updates!  To ensure your attendance at this event, please pre-register prior to July 1, 2021! We recommend registering as early as possible however, since registration could reach capacity prior to July 1!

What happens if the government changes GATHERING LIMITS?
