Sunday, Dec 11

5K Run/Walk (9:00 - 10:30 AM) – Run or walk as you weave your way through the park, around and under some of their world-famous coasters on a USATF-sanctioned race course. Snag your medal at the finish line, then join us for post-race refreshments, DJ, and award ceremony.

10K Race (9:00 - 10:30 AM) – Run this scenic, USATF-sanctioned course through the park and surrounding areas, followed by post-race refreshments, DJ, and award ceremony. Cash prizes for top 3 male and female overall finishers, finisher medals for all! See Awards & Results tab for more details.

Post-Race Brunch (10:00 AM) - Refuel after you cross the finish line with a catered, all-you-can-eat brunch buffet! Participants will have the option to add brunch to their race package during registration, as well as purchase brunch tickets for friends and family. Please note: family and friends planning enter the park after the race for brunch, awards ceremony, or early park access will need to purchase a park ticket or show a valid season pass for entry.
