Other Info

Participants in the 5 Mile event will receive a timing chip. Your chip will be issued to you at packet pickup or the morning of the event at the registration table. You must wear your chip on your shoe laces. Return your chip at the end of the race to avoid a $75 fee.

Participants in the Family Fun Trek will not be timed but will be issued a race bib


Prizes will be awarded to our overall male/female finishers as well as the top three finishers in each of the following age divisions for the 5 Mile participant only:

12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+

This event will use the "gun time" in order to determine results meaning everyone's race time will start together when the announcer starts the race.
