We hope to see everyone in person this year as the race and all other event activities are outdoors. However, should the ever-evolving COVID-19 virus preclude an in-person event, the event will become a virtual one, and all participant items will be mailed to registrants.
5K and 10K course amenities
5K and 10K courses include course marshals, water and energy beverage stops, and medical support teams.
Strollers and Pets
To ensure the safety of all participants, strollers, skates, and scooters are prohibited on the 5K and 10K race routes. Strollers are permitted on the 1 Mile Family Fun Walk. Please leave your pets at home.
The event takes place rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel the event due to extreme weather conditions.
To guarantee that your run is timed, you must be registered before 7:45 AM on Sunday, October 24.
Refunds will not be given. Registration fees can be changed to a donation.
