Course: The event covers an out-and-back course, starting and finishing at the Walton County Government Building. This is a new course for the Flat Joe 5k, as we are starting at the Fallen Heroes Memorial location (statue that was unveiled at last year's 5k) Course information to be found at www.walkjogrun.net. Because it is a two-way route out and back, strollers and pets are strongly discouraged in the Flat Joe 5K for safety reasons.
T-Shirts: All early-registrants and ghost runners will be guaranteed a short sleeved t-shirt at the time of packet pick-up. All participants who enter the event during the late-registration phase or on the day of the race will not be guaranteed a shirt—we will do our best, but the early bird gets the worm!
