What if it rains?

We run rain or shine! However, the safety of our participants comes first. So, if there is a threat of thunderstorms, a lightening strike, accumulating snow or any other risky weather, we are required to wait 30 minutes before starting. In this case, we will postpone the start time up to one hour. If after one hour, the threat has not passed, unfortunately, we will have to cancel the event.

Volunteers Needed!!!

We always need help planning and staffing our 5k events. On 5k Day, we’ll need help from approx. 8:30 a.m. – noon with refreshments and pre-run activities. If you would like to volunteer in this way, please complete our volunteer application and indicate your interest as “5k volunteer.” Thank you.
