We're sorry - no race day registration is available. 





Race Director Request:

For safety reasons, if you run faster than 6:00/mile, please run the 5M race, not the 5K. This course includes 2-way sections, cross-overs and a .4 mile section where the lead 5K runners will run next to 5M runners on their final mile. Anyone running faster than 6:00/mile in the 5K will ruin our fun day.

So if you're a super fast 5K runner, please contact to be switched into the 5M - you might win a TomTom Sport Watch too!
