As we are not a USATF certified 5K, our course runs just short of 5K due to permit restrictions. 
T-shirts are guaranteed for all registrations before Oct. 10th. We will do our best to match your shirt size but cannot guarantee exact size requested.


Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors! Please show them some love by visiting their websites.
