We are happy to announce that thanks to the relaxing of restrictions on outdoor group activities we will be able to have a single start for both the Half Marathon and the 5K on race morning.  The official start time for everyone in the Half Marathon will be 7:30AM.  The official start time for everyone in the 5K will be 8:00AM.

We do ask that participants still maintain safe distancing before, during, and after the event and that they wear face covings when not running.

In order to provide for safe distancing, the starting line for each race will remain open for 15 minutes.  We will be recording start times for each person and your official time will begin when you cross the starting line.

Also, we are proud to announce that thanks to a collaboration with Chesterton Brewery a portion of the race proceeds will be donated to help create a First Responders Memorial to be located at 124 N 8th St. Chesterton, IN.  As a thank you for taking part in the event, participants will receive a coupon for a free beverage of their choice at Chesterton Brewery following the race.

Water stops will be provided for the half marathon
