Both 5K's Start at 8AM!
Take the Dare 5K: If you choose to "Take the Dare" you are the true competitors, signing up for the complete race and the full ten doughnuts in order to gain immortality in the racing and eating world. True men and women who aren't afraid of a little stomach cramp will be in this division where bragging rights reign supreme and the ultimate champion of the day will be named.
Leisure Runner 5K: If you choose to be a "Leisure Runner" you stand no less in the eyes of the crowd, though you will certainly feel better at the end of race. You simply run the race (no small feat if you ask us) and have the choice of enjoying as many or as few doughnuts as you choose along the way, with no pressure. There will be a winner of this division as well based on time alone.
Morale: Perhaps the most important, the "Morale" will be out in force to pump those racers up! You will sign up to cheer on the hungry souls that have embarked on the run by holding signs, waving banners, sounding horns, clanging cymbals, or whatever they need to do to encourage the participants. Of course there will be a winner in this division as well for best Moraler or group of Moralers as we reward those who encourage others.
Awards: Overall Male and Female in the Take the Dare and Leisure Runner divisions. First place age group awards will be given to 10 year age groups starting with 10 and under and going through 70 and Over in the Take the Dare and Leisure Runner division.
Timing and Results: Chip Timing for both divisions and results provided by Classic Race Services with results posted to www.classicraceservices.com, www.coolrunning.com, www.active.com and www.runningintheusa.com. This will be a gun start and a chip timed finish.
Shirts and Goodies: Shirts are guaranteed to those who register by 1/10/18. Those who register after that date and on race day are not guaranteed a shirt or size. There will be plenty of healthy refreshments and did we mention DOUGHNUTS!
Series Affiliation: Both 5K divisions will be awarded 2018 Black Bag Race Series Points separately.
