Course Information

To help facilitate a positive race experience for all runners and walkers, we ask that you practice standard 5k etiquette:

  • Please do not push or rush to the starting line once the gun goes off.  The race is chip timed, so your time won’t start until you cross the starting line.  No need to hurry!  Walk calmly and orderly to the starting line and then start running.
  • As much as possible, please try to run at an even pace the entire race instead of starting and stopping, sprinting and walking, etc.
  • Should you need to walk, please move to the far right of the street and try to ease your pace into a walk instead of abruptly stopping.
  • Allow runners to pass on the left.
  • Please pass slower runners/walkers on the left.
  • If you see a runner who needs medical attention, please alert a Course Marshal.
  • Run or walk in pairs only.  No groups of three or more across the street as it would block other runners from passing.
  • Do not wear another runner’s bib. It is mandatory for runners to register for the race so each participant signs our waiver. Also, wearing another runner’s bib will alter the race results.
  • No bicycles are allowed on the race course (except for designated bike marshals).
  • Participants may run or walk with a stroller BUT they must start at the very back of the race (even if running with a Girl on the Run participant).
  • iPods and other personal music players are also highly discouraged.  Running music-free helps to make the race safer and allows you to really take in the atmosphere of the race!

Weather/Emergency Policy

Race officials may cancel, delay, or change the event in case of extreme weather or other conditions that may affect the safety and health of the participants. In the event of cancellation, refunds will not be issued. Generally, if it rains, we will run!
