Participants under 18. It is free for all kids under 12 years old to register for any of the races, but they still must register to participate. Minors under 18 must have a parent or guardian's permission to participate. Every participant under 18 must have a parent or guardian electronically sign the waiver for the minor.  Children riding in strollers do not need to register for the race.

Strollers. Strollers are allowed but you will be asked to start at the rear of the pack for safety reasons. Please keep in mind that some of the course is on turf, so your stroller must be able to handle that terrain. Children in strollers should not be registered for the race.

Dogs. Dogs are not allowed on the course with participants due to insurance limitations. Spectators on school grounds should not bring dogs.

Headphones. The use of headphones is highly discouraged. 

Walkers. Walkers are welcome in the 5K event and will also be timed. However, we ask that 10K participants plan to run the course.  

Refunds. Entry fees are non-refundable. Please contact us if there are extenuating circumstances. In the event we need to cancel due to dangerous weather or other circumstances, a refund or credit toward next year’s registration is available. Please note that for the refund you must apply online and pay a $1 fee. The initial RunSignUp processing fee is not refundable.


Prizes and Giveaways

The top three men and women in both the 5K and 10K receive prize packages. All the kids in the fun run get a finisher's ribbon. Free lettuce plants from Dandelion Acres for all participants.


Chip timing will be provided by 802 Timing using disposable bib tags.  Just like with all chip timing systems, you are responsible for wearing your bib correctly in order to be timed.  802 Timing is a Vermont based company serving local middle schools, high schools and colleges, communities, businesses and non-profit organizations.
