Description

Please take a moment to learn more about our 2024 Charity Partner by clicking on the link at the top of the page....and consider making a donation!  THANK YOU!

The $5K is designed as a low-key race for the athlete who wants 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. 

General Information:
This $5K race series is sponsored by the Twin City Track Club.  You do not have to be a TCTC member to participate; however, we think you would enjoy the benefits of a TCTC membership and we would love to have you.  Members run the $5K series for FREE.....and receive a discount on ALL TCTC sponsored races!

 
What you get:
A 5k course that is accurate, well-marked, and FLAT

Where:
The races will occur at Jamison Park, which is located next to Meadowlark Middle School (401 Meadowlark Dr.)  The course is a flat out and back on the Muddy Creek Greenway that starts at Jamison Park, heads toward Robinhood Road, and then turns around and returns to the Park. This is a PR course for the competitive runner and a nice easy course for the novice.

NEW FOR 2024!!

We will use AGE GRADED SCORING to score each race in the $5K Series.  RunSignUp provides an “Age Percentage” column in the Results.  This will be the number of points each athlete earns.

We will take your five fastest races and average the points together to get your final series points total.

Awards will be given to the 25 athletes with the most points at the end of the series. 

Scoring will be based on CHIP TIMES.
