Description

Whitewater Community Fundraising Partners is excited to offer an
IN-PERSON 5k Run/Walk
TOMORROW, SUNDAY, at 8am - Starin Park, Whitewater

If you are not quite ready for an in person event, you can choose the virtual option starting today and ending on June 28, 2020

 

We know athletes are itching to get out and run/walk with others. 

 

This is a fundraising event to help homeless youth in the Whitewater School District.  We are working directly with the Whitewater School District.  In April 2019, both the Janesville Gazette and the Daily Jefferson Union stating that 'Whitewater School District has over 60 homeless students.'  This is a staggering 3% of the total student population.  

 

Your safety is our priority, so we have setup safety protocols so that we keep racers socially distanced before, during, and after racing.

 

Mask or no mask?  Please do what makes you comfortable.  Our volunteers will be wearing masks and some will be wearing gloves, as well.

 

Here is a summary of our guidelines:
1.  Runners will be assigned start times, beginning at 8am.
2.  The event will be capped at 200 racers.
3.  Runners should arrive 20 minutes within their start time (not before please).
4.  Pickup your race bag (shirt/if applicable, bib, & pins will be in your bag)
5   Be at the starting line 6 minutes before your scheduled start time.
6.  Runners will start every minute, 3-4 racers on the line.  There will be markings for the "bullpen" racers.
7.  If you need to pass a runner, please keep your distance.
8.  Park bathrooms are available on race day.
9.  Bottled water will be handed out, after the race (the volunteer will be wearing gloves and mask).

10.  Results will be posted on-line by 2pm and awards will be mailed.  Awards will be by 10 year brackets (U19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+ for both men and women)
11.  Start times and bullpen announcements will be made regularly.
