Event Description

Fit & Able is excited to announce a new race this year at Bond Park! It's not quite a lap race but you will get your split times for each lap of your distance! There's ONE COURSE but FIVE RACES for you to choose from to challenge yourself for how far you can go before the course closes. BUT you only have 3 hours to complete the distance of your choice so challenge yourself but pick what you think you can accomplish!

Since this is an evening race we are using a simple 5K course for all races that we can safely manage as it gets dark. There will be plenty of light as the sun sets for early runners but the course will be lit by luminaria and glow sticks for longer distance runners. Greater distance races will run increasing laps of that course. BUT the longer distances will ALSO get the split times for each 5K lap!

PLUS there will be special awards for those races at each split too! So you may not win the race but you might win a lap or two and win prizes as well!

  • 5K - 1 Lap - Finish Time
  • 10K - 2 Laps - 5K Split & Finish Time
  • 15K - 3 - Laps - 5K Split, 10K Split, & Finish Time
  • 20K - 4  Laps - 5K Split, 10K Split, 15K Split, & Finish Time
  • 25K - 5 Laps - 5K Split, 10K Split, 15K Split, 20K Split & Finish Time

PLUS PLUS you can race MULTIPLE distances and win MULTIPLE awards with ONE run and ONE finish time! How? If you sign up for multiple race distances, you will get a timing chip only for the longest distance but we will apply your lap split times as finish times to the shorter races. You will be eligible for the Overall, Age Group, and Lap Split awards for all registered events.

  • eg. Sign up for the 5K, 10K, & 15K: 5K Lap Split = 5K - Finish Time & 10K/15K - 5K Split; 10K Lap Split = 10K - Finish Time & 15K - 10K Split, etc.) 

AND you'll get a DISCOUNT when you sign up for multiple races too (* discount applies to the lowest cost event on multiple registrations per participant):

The course closes for all races at 9 PM. Runners will not be allowed to start a new lap after that point; any runners who can't complete their distance in the allowed time will be automatically transferred to the race distance they did complete. Runners who have started a lap before 9 PM will be allowed to finish their run and their full finish time and distance will be counted. 

All finishers will get a Sunset Scramble medal (PLUS a unique token for your distance) and head lamp to light their way. Shirt included with registration until July 31st.
