About This Activity

After such a great showing in 2015, we’re back with Team One Credit Union presenting THE Cinco De Mayo race event for the City of Flint! AND we’ve got more sombreros!  Once again, the first 300 registered participants will receive one of these festive hats, so come prepared to don the sombrero and celebratory attire and help usher in the spring.   NEW this year, Tri To Finish is partnering with Cinco K Race Productions for this outstanding event!

As in years past, participants will be able to enjoy post-race festivities that include a delicious Mexican snack from Rico’s Authentic Mexican Take Out!  This is definitely a race you will not want to miss.

New this year is the "Train To Finish" program with the YMCA of Saginaw!  For details that include special membership pricing at the YMCA, visit the Train To Finish website HERE!

Refund Policy

We completely understand that plans change and athletes will sometimes be unable to compete in an event they've signed up for.  Unfortunately, refunds will not be provided for any event unless the event is cancelled for some reason.

Should an athlete have an injury or other medical issue keeping them from competing in an event they've registered for, we would be happy to transfer their registration to a similar event up to and including the same event the following season.

Transferring registrations to other athletes is NOT allowed
