About This Activity

The Details:

The 5K route through the Silver Creek Plantation neighborhood features an out-and-back run with a bit of trail (off-road) distance and rolling hills.

5K Cost: $25 before June 26th; $30 after & on-site

1 Mile Fun Run (non-competitive) Cost: $15 before June 26th; $20 after & on-site

1 Mile Competitive Youth Run Cost: $15 before June 26th; $20 after & on-site

All 5K finishers receive a finisher's medal and Shores Multisport runner's headscarf.  1 Mile finishers receive a Shores Multisport runner's headscarf and can purchase a medal for $5 on race day as supplies last.  Anyone who already has a Shores Multisport Runner's Headscarf from a previous event or who does not want one for this event, use code NOSCARF to receive a $5 discount on your registration.

Can't make the race date but want to support the charity partner?  Register to be a Virtual Participant, run the 3.1 mile distance as you're able, and we'll mail you the race swag (Shores Multisport runner's headscarf and medal)!  Virtual Participant Cost is $25.  We use an honor system and there is no requirement to prove your time or when you've completed the distance.
