The 5K course is a Certified out-and-back.  

The 10K is two laps.


Groups and Teams

Running is more F-U-N together, even if we're far apart! 

Grab your friends, co-workers, neighbors or family and participate as a TEAM.  Your TEAM can be local or across the states; virtual participants will have their shirts shipped!  *Teams of 5 or more receive discounts off their registration, discounts below. 

  • 5+: $2.50 off
  • 11+:  $3.75 off
