Costume Contest

Cupless Race

One of the best ways to be environmentally responsible is to reduce the amount of waste we create. We will not be offering disposable cups, however, access to a water station at the halfway point will be available. Please bring your own reusable hydration system.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and for your commitment to a greener event.

Inclement Weather

Safety is our top priority

The Lunar New Year 5k will run rain or shine. During inclement weather or an emergency, our first priority is the safety and welfare of our event participants and staff. We recognize that canceling the Lunar New Year 5k is burdensome to participants who registered and paid with the expectation of a great event. We consider canceling the event to only come due to exceptional concerns of:

  • The safety and well-being of participants and staff
  • Severity of weather (unsafe path conditions, extreme snow, flooding, etc.)
  • The ability to drive safely
  • The condition of the course and event locations (downed power lines, etc.)
Making the Decision

ICHS determines when and if conditions warrant the closing of the event. This decision is made in collaboration with the City of Shoreline, Traffic Management contractor, American Medical Response, and event partner Aurora Rents. The National Weather Service will be the primary meteorological source to determine and declare weather conditions such as snow forecasts.

Notification about Cancelation

The decision will normally be made 24 hours before the event (i.e. 8 am on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024 for the 2024 Lunar New Year 5k). This allows weather conditions to be monitored overnight to avoid an unnecessary cancelation. In the event of cancelation, participants, staff and volunteers can expect an email to registered email address. Cancelation information will also be shared on:

No Refund Policy

The Lunar New Year 5k does not offer refunds of entry fees. Participants will be notified of a later date they can pick up race T-shirts.
