5 Dollar 5K - August

Tue August 13, 2019 Winston-Salem, NC US 27106 Directions

$5 5K August

6:30PM EDT
Race Day Update
It looks like the nasty weather pushed through early and we should be OK by race time.  Our plan is to proceed as scheduled with a 6:30pm race start.  If weather conditions worsen, then we will re-evaluate.  We will post any further updates on the Race Website and the Twin City Track Club Facebook Group page.

We hope to see you there!

The $5- 5k is designed as a low-key race for the athletes who want to run a tune-up race to prepare for their targeted event, the novice who may be intimidated by the larger events and runners/walkers who want an event to test themselves without breaking the bank.

Race  Fee Notes:
You can pre-register online at no cost using coupon code PAYATRACE, but must pay the $5 entry fee when you pick up your race bib on the day of the event.

Twin City Track Club Members will receive a full race discount of $5 for all $5 5K races - unlimited usage.

What you get:

  • A 5k course that is accurate and well-marked
  • Aid stations on the course and finish area that have water and Gatorade
  • Mile Markers 
  • Clock at the finish line
  • Accurate finishing times posted at the event and uploaded to the TCTC website ASAP
  • Support for all levels of runners or walkers

What you don’t get:

  • T-Shirts – don’t you have a closetful already?
  • Food at the finish area, unless a local establishment wants to provide something – any takers?
  • Verbal splits, unless we have a plethora of volunteers
  • Medals or trophies – we may have gift certificates that are awarded based on varying criteria
  • Where:
  • The events will occur at Jamison Park, which is located next to Meadowlark School (401 Meadowlark Dr.)  The course is a flat out and back on the Muddy Creek Greenway that starts at Jamison Park, turns around at Robinhood Rd and returns to the Park. This is a PR course for the competitive and nice easy course for the novice.
