Important timing chip information!Timing chips for the 10k timed run and 5k timed run will be attached to your bib. Upon picking up your bib and t-shirt, you will be given instructions on how to attach your timing chip to your shoe. DO NOT remove the timing chip from your bib until race day. The timing chip is disposable, so no need to return it after the race.
5k race format Our 5k event includes two categories: 5k timed runners and 5k Fun Run/Walk participants. The run is open to adults and children of all ages including children in strollers. For safety reasons, adults should accompany your runner and indicate a safe meeting location if you are separated. The participants for these events will start separately and will be sectioned into two categories. Please pay attention to the signs that will indicate where you need to be. 5k timed runners will need to pick-up their timing chip before the start of the race. The 5k timed race will start promptly at 8:15am. Only 5k timed runners will be in the start area at 8:15am. The 5K Fun Run/Walk participants will begin lining up behind the 5k timed runners and will start their event at 8:30am.
