Packet Pick Up & Race Day Registration - 7:30 AM - 8:45 AM

To save time and stress on race day, and to insure we have enough race shirts for everyone, we encourage all participants to pre-register.

Race Day Registration will be available from 7:30 AM - 8:45 AM. Blank forms will be at the registration table. Please note that free T-shirts will only be distributed to those who pre-register by April 1st. Race day registrants will not receive a T-shirt with their packet, but a limited supply of T-shirts will be available for purchase on race day.

Babysitting will be available for a suggested donation of $5/child.

Kids Fun Run - 8:30 AM

We will offer two non-competitive races for kids 12 and under who wish to participate in the event:

  • Kids 6 and under will run a 100 yard dash from the actual 5K starting line of the race to the actual 5K finish line.
  • Kids 7-12 and up will run one loop around the church (.2 miles, which is just less than 1 loop around a standard track).

All kids will receive a bib number, finishers medal, and T-Shirt!

5K Run - 9:00 AM

For safety, we ask that runners please position themselves in the starting gate based on expected pace/finish time. Runners will share the same start gun time. Finish time will be automatically recorded as you run through the finish gate. All runners must wear a visible bib number. We will be using the ChronoTrack B-Tag RFID system for this race, so it will be important to keep these instructions in mind to insure you receive an accurate time:

  • Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Race bib is pinned in all four corners
  • Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)

Course directions are available on our course map page. For safety, follow the directions of the course marshals during the race, and stay on the left hand side of the road unless told otherwise by course marshals. On Main Street South, you must run on the left side of the road - not on the sidewalk. Water will be available at the 1.3 and 2.1 mile markers. For safety, no pets, strollers, jogging strollers, iPods, or other MP3 players will be allowed on the course.

5K Walk - 9:00 AM (Once runners have all passed the start line)

Walkers will follow the runners - listen for the instructions from the race organizer for where to line up. Please do not line up with the 5K runners, out of courtesy and for the safety of all. Course directions are available on our course map page. For safety reasons, strollers and baby joggers will not be permitted on the course. Please follow the directions of the course marshals, and stay on the left hand side of the road unless told otherwise by course marshals. On Main Street South, you must walk on the sidewalk. Water will be available just after the mile 1 and mile 2 markers. For safety; no pets, strollers or jogging strollers, iPods, or other MP3 players will be allowed on the course.

Awards - Approximately 10:15 AM

Awards will be given to the first Overall Male & Female 5K finishers, and to the top 3 runners in each of the following divisions:
Male & Female: 10 & under, 11-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & up
