Awards have been generously provided by sponsor Fleet Feet, and will be distributed for the timed 5K event only. Details about categories and/or age brackets will be shared later.
This event is considered a "fun run" by nature, and is catered to the more casual or non-competitive runner. This is not a closed course; participants should be prepared to possibly wait temporarily at a street crossing until directed to do so safely by a police officer. While major intersections will be monitored by Greensboro Police Department, other smaller intersections on the Downtown Greenway route will not be closed. Participants should use caution when approaching all street crossings along the route. Please familiarize yourself with the course route in advance, so you know what to expect on event day.
The 5K event will be timed using bib-tag timing chips, located on the back of the bib number, which do not need to be returned after the run. The 5K event is a chip time start, meaning your time will not start until you reach the start timing mat. Make sure your number is clearly visible on the front of your body. Final chip time is the time your chip crossed the finish timing mat, which is how awards will be determined.
All registered participants (1 Mile and/or 5K) are also automatically entered into a number of different prize drawings, which will be announced on Saturday after the awards.
