The 5K will begin in the school parking lot, and loop through the subdivisions of Mistwood, Old Oak and Manchester Meadows subdivisions. Warm up prior to the race with instructors from Barre + Beyond in Valparaiso, Indiana!
Because of the current COVID 19 pandemic we will be utilizing an open start for the 5K race. This will allow runners to start individually or in small groups of associated participants (family member or participants that live together) during the time between 9:20-9:30 am. Each participant’s start time will be recorded as they cross the starting line. As participants finish, they will receive a text message and/or email with their finishing time. A list of overall finishing times for all competitors will be continually updated at www.thtiming.com while the race is in progress.
