5K - Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the distance of this Run/Walk?
The race is a 5k (3.1 miles) distance. The course is USATF certified for accuracy.

Can I run with my dog?
NO, we ask that you please leave your 4 legged friends at home as this event will be held on school property.

Are walkers allowed?
YES! Walkers are welcome to participate! All we ask is that you walk no more than 2-3 people abreast so that other participants may pass by easily. Walkers will start the race at the same time as runners but are advised to start the race at the back of the pack for safety reasons!

What if the weather is bad the day of the event?
The race will be held in early May, so rain or cold weather will be likely. Registration and post-race activities will be held indoors. The race will take place come rain, snow or shine!

Can I get a refund if I registered, but did not participate?
We plan the race based on the number of registered runners, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. You are also agreeing to our no refund policy by signing our waiver on the race application. (Race shirts will not be mailed out.)

Can I reserve a shirt size or request another size?
When you register and circle the t-shirt size you want, you are helping us plan how many shirts we need to order in each size. We cannot guarantee that there will be other available sizes the day of the event.

Will there be race shirts available if I register the day of the event?
If you missed early registration, come early to register the day of the event to try and get a shirt in your size. Supplies will be limited.

What are the parking accommodations?
Ample parking will be available on site at Macopin Middle School and across the street at the High School parking lots. If you can, please try to carpool!

Where will the water stop be located?
Water will be available around the half way point of the race.

Are there Awards for top finishers?
Yes, Trophies will be given to the top 1st, 2nd & 3rd overall Male and Female. Medals will be given to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finishers in their respected age group category. (No duplicate awards for age group placement). To see our age group categories, please check out our race application. Please be present at the award ceremony to win!
