FAQ

Q: Where do I park?
A: Security and police officers will be available to direct you to University parking lots, along with parking signage. Parking is also indicated on the course map below.

Q: Can I reserve a shirt in a certain size?
A: As long as you register early, we will order the size you have requested on your registration form. Registrations received after April 7 might not receive the requested shirt size, but we will try our best to order at the latest date possible.

Q: Do runners start at a separate time than walkers?
A: No; however, we ask that runners lineup at or near the starting line and the walkers gather towards the back of the line. We also ask that all racers allow people to pass on the left. If you're at a slower pace than those behind you, please stay to the right of the path.

Q: Is there a discount for students?
A:
Yes, if you're currently enrolled at Texas Wesleyan, you MUST register in person at Student Life or in the alumni office (2nd floor, Admin. Bldg.) in order to receive your discount. Questions? Contact the alumni office at 817.531.6548 or alumni@txwes.edu.

Q: Is there a discount for kids?
A: Yes. Kids, ages 5-12, can participate at $15. The price will be indicated in the shopping cart, which is calculated according to their date of birth.

Q: Are dogs allowed at the event?
A: Unfortunately, not this year. Please leave your pets at home.

Q: Are strollers allowed in the W5K?
A: Yes, feel free to participate with your babies or kids in strollers. However, we ask that you please start the race near the back of the lineup to allow our runners a head start and avoid potential collisions.

Q: Where will onsite registration be located?
A: On the front steps of the School of Business (Armstrong Mabee Business Center), next to the University clock tower at the intersection of Rosedale and Vaughn Streets.

Q: Where are the best locations for spectators?
