Join us Saturday, June 17 (Father’s Day Weekend) for the 10th annual Necktie 5K Walk & Run. As the name implies, participants are encouraged to wear neckties during the run in recognition of fathers everywhere! Prizes will be awarded to participants with the most-creative neckties. Prizes are also awarded to the first father\son and father\daughter teams to finish together. This is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your dad and enjoy beautiful views of Lake Michigan.
Pre-registered participants may receive a commemorative race number and official race shirt. T-Shirts are short-sleeved and unisex-sized; available in Kid's Small - Adult XXL.
The top three finishers in each age group will receive a necktie. Also, awards will be given to the first father-son and first father-daughter teams to run the race together and cross the finish line together.

Groups of 4 or more who register online at the same time will receive a $5 discount per registration. A discount will also be given to participants who register early and do not wish to get a t-shirt.
