If you're a runner on a budget, we have a deal for you! On New Year's Day, you can run a 5K for free! The run is limited to the first 40 people to sign up, so make sure you register fast! If you don't register, you're encouraged to be a bandit. After all, it's free!

This is a casual run; we'll time it manually but there's no chip timing this year. There will be no awards for the runners, but volunteers will get some sweet prizes for helping out.

Race packets

You want a race packet? This is not the race for you! We don't need no stinkin' race packets -- just show up and run!


You want amenities? Well, there will probably be some water at the finish line. 

Volunteer Awards

Volunteers will get their choice of a coffee mug left over from the 2013 ROC Series or a pair of DeFeet socks left over from 2012's Pick Your Poison races. Don't worry - they're unworn. Limited sizes while supplies last.

Runners don't get squat, other than the satisfaction of a run well done, plus plenty of camaraderie.
