The Emerson Point Scenic Sunrise 5K will be a socially distanced in-person event produced by Fit2Time on April 17, 2021 at the beautiful Emerson Point Preserve. The course will be a fast out and back from the entrance of the park to the point and back on a mix of crushed gravel trails and road. This will be the first event in the inaugural Sunrise2Sunset series supporting the Big Bill Foundation. The first 300 runners to sign up for both the Emerson Point Preserve 5K and the Robinson Preserve 5K or 10K will receive a special pair of custom Goodr sunglasses at packet pickup for the Robinson Preserve event!
All participants will receive a race shirt, bib, and medal. We will be starting the race in groups of 50 participants every 5 minutes to provide safe distancing.
Packet pickup dates will be announced as we get closer to race day. Packet mailing will be available for all participants who opt for packet mailing during the checkout process. There will be no onsite race day packet pickup due to Covid-19 restrictions. Age group awards will be available for pickup at the Fit2Run UTC store location following the event.
Parking for the event will be available at the large field on 17th St W .6 miles East of the park entrance.
The beneficiary of the 2021 Emerson Point Scenic Sunrise 5K will be the Big Bill Foundation. The mission of the Big Bill Foundation is to provide scholarships to participate in extracurricular activities for youth that have battled childhood cancer or other life-threatening conditions. Honoring the memory of Bill Robinson, the Big Bill Foundation is striving to bring the benefits of extracurricular activities, such as sport, music, and art to the lives of children that have fought the hardest battle.
