Thank you for your interest in participating in our 2nd annual Elevate 5k and 10k race. All the proceeds from this event will go to support the Elevate summer missions trip. This year we will be serving somewhere on the west coast of the US. We are considering an opportunity to help with recovery efforts of the Camp Fire, but plans have not been finalized. We will ultimately serve wherever and in whatever way God leads. Your participation as either a runner or volunteer will help make it possible!
For only $18 you can challenge yourself to complete either the 5k (3.1 miles) or 10k (6.2 miles) race. Awards will be given to the winners in both distances for the different age groups at the 10:30am awards ceremony. Runners will be allowed 90 minutes to complete the race. This means 5k participants have plenty of freedom to walk as long as they complete each mile in under 29 minutes. 10k participants will need to average 14.5 minutes each mile which still allows for some walking during the race if needed. While this is a competition, everyone is invited to participate regardless of age or physical ability. It will be a lively and encouraging environment which will be fun both for first timers and experienced runners.
Runners must arrive by 8:30 on race morning to receive their race bib and all final instructions before the race begins at 9:00. The entire race takes place on the First Baptist / VCA campus, and there will be volunteers throughout the course in order to provide a safe environment for even the youngest of runners.
We will have water, Gatorade and bananas throughout the course and celebratory ice cream sandwiches at the end for all finishers. We hope you have a great time training for and participating in this race!
