When and where does the race take place?
Saturday May 28, 2016. The race takes place at Center Lake Park.

How long is the course?
The 5K is 3.1 miles.

How will I be timed?
The race uses an electronic timing system that records race time and place via a transponder chip that will be given out at registration. Each individual competing in the 5K is required to use the race chip. Official times will not be recorded without a chip. There will be a clock at the finish line to view your time.

How will I receive my results?
Official results are posted for the top runners in each category, race staff has all results for on-site inquiries and results are posted on the race website.

Can I use my own race chip or tag rather than utilizing the one that is provided?
No, for this year's race, we are not equipped to utilize individuals’ personal chips or tags. Each participant will be provided with a custom chip and bib.

Who gets a T-shirt?
Only pre-registered runners that successfully complete the registration and payment processes seven weekdays before the race are guaranteed a free race t-shirt. Several shirts are printed for the race day registrations.

Can I participate with a stroller?
Yes, nurturing future generations of runners is a priority and demonstrating healthy lifestyles to our kids is special. Please, however, start in the later part of the runners.

Should I bring my own water?
Yes, but a water station is available on the course and after the race.

How much does it cost?
Early registration is $15-$30 per person, depending on the date.

I will be out of town on race day and unable to participate. Can I get my money returned?
We appreciate your race registration. We are unable to issue refunds. We are not in a position to credit your credit card or issue checks.

Will the race be held if it's raining?
The race is a "rain or shine" event. All participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather, such as in a rain coat or hat. Umbrellas can pose a safety hazard to others, so please do not bring them.

What will be provided after the race?
An awards ceremony will take place after the race.

Can I transfer my entry to someone else?
We have a strict NO TRANSFER policy.
