Join the HAIRPIN 5K Run/Walk!

The Hairpin 5K Run/Walk is the longest running 5K in Door County, WI and it is a great July 4 tradition for runners and walkers of all ages.  This year Friends of Gibraltar will continue the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk as a hybrid event with options to participate in person and virtually on July 4. 

We are so happy to be able to host the Hairpin 5K in person this July 4th in Fish Creek, WI! Hosting this event on the heels of a pandemic has brought some changes to the event to follow CDC recommendations and provide the safest event we can for you. See Runner/Walker Info.

Friends of Gibraltar Schools has hosted the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk as a fundraising event for over 30 years with the proceeds providing all of the funding each year for field trips and enrichment experiences for students in grades K-12 at Gibraltar Schools in Fish Creek, WI.  Your participation in the Virtual Hairpin 5K Run/Walk will allow Friends of Gibraltar to continue providing excellent educational programs for Gibraltar Schools. 

Possible Transition to Virtual Event for 2021
We are doing our best to offer an in-person event. However, as of April 2021, our State and County are rated as having high Covid activity, which makes large gatherings a high risk.

The Hairpin 5K Run/Walk organizers reserve the right to make this event completely virtual as needed to address Covid concerns the Door County Public Health Department may have in July. We will not provide refunds or referrals if this event becomes completely virtual. 

If you prefer to sign up as a virtual participant, please do so on your registration form -- it will help us with advance planning and preparations for the in-person event. Virtual participants time themselves and run or walk any 5K distance before July 5. Runners can submit their time in the results section on our website.

Through June 15th
Adults (13+): $25 + tax
Children (12 & under): $10 + tax

June 16-July 4 (registration closes at 7:30am)
Adults (13+): $30 + tax
Children (12 & under): $15 + tax

The 2021 registration price does not include a T-shirt. We have partnered with FLS Banners in Sturgeon Bay, WI to make ordering Hairpin merchandise available online and shipped directly to you!

We greatly appreciate the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk participants for their support for school students!
