The Tenth Annual Big Nut Strut will provide funds to all Big Walnut Elementary, Intermediate and Middle School PTOs. The goal of the PTOs is to enrich the students' educational experience by providing additional programs and materials that will enhance their curriculum, especially during a time when funding and programs have been eliminated. The 5K run/walk gives the entire school district a chance to come out to show their EAGLE PRIDE!

Additional Race Information

Early packet pickup

You can pick up your race packets, t-shirt, and bib number on Saturday, October 12th from 8a-12p at Sunbury Chiropractic (123 State Route 3 in Sunbury)

All participants will receive a race shirt and finish line refreshments. You must pre-register by September 27 to be guaranteed a shirt on race day.

Event changes

You can change your event (5K -> 1 Mile, or 1 Mile -> 5K) at any time! If it's before the race starts, simply go to your RunSignUp profile and follow these instructions. If you are switching from the 5K to the 1 Mile, you're all set. If you're switching from the 1 Mile to the 5K, be sure that your race number has a timing tag on the back. If it does not, please find a race registration volunteer and explain that you are switching to the 5K and need a timed number. If you switch to the 1 Mile on race day: please let the timing team at the finish line know immediately! Participating in the event you're registered for is important to ensure a smooth awards process.
