RACE INFO

REGISTRATION
All registrations must be done online. Due to how we process our race bibs and chip timing, we will not be able to take onsite registrations. You may register online by clicking here
 
KIDS DASH
Kids aged 12 and under who register for the Kids Dash can also do the 5K free of charge, however, they will not be chip timed unless they register for the 5K. They will be able to do both events, regardless of which one they are registered for. The only difference is that if you register them for the Kids Dash and not the 5K, they will not be chip-timed for the 5K. If you register your child for the 5K, they can do the Kids Dash for free.
The Kids’ Race will be either 200 or 400 meters depending on their age. They will run the perimeter of the parking lot behind Racquet & Jog. A parent or adult may run with the child, if desired.
 
Age divisions will be as follows: 10-12, 7-9, 4-6, and 3 & Under. 
Kids Dash participants will receive a race bib (non-chip timed), a t-shirt and a finisher medal.
T-SHIRTS
  • T-Shirt sizes: Adult Unisex S-2XL and Youth S - XL

  • T-shirts are distributed at packet pick up on a first come, first served basis. Even if you registered early and selected a t-shirt size, you are not guaranteed your t-shirt size.

CHIP TIMING & RUNNER CORRALS
