The event will start and finish in Memorial Park in Scarborough.

5k awards will be given to the 1st and 2nd overall male and female runners as well as 1st and 2nd place in 10 year age groups. There will be a Wheel Chair (male/female), 1st and 2nd place Veteran (Male/Female), fastest employee (Male/Female), 1st and 2nd place Team category.
