Do you offer any discounts?

Because $5 of your entry can go towards one of our 96 charities, we currently don’t offer any discounts. As a reminder, your entry fee includes a tshirt, medal, timing, and free digital race photos.

Can kids run in the 5K?

Of course! Anyone can participate in the 5K, they just need to select the appropriate pricing on the registration page. Under 17 is a little cheaper than adults. If you have a really little one who is in a stroller, you don’t need to register them UNLESS you want a medal and shirt for them. In order to get a medal a the finish line, everyone has to have a bib.

I need to change my registration. How do I do that?

Any changes to registrations the week of the event must be done at the SOLUTIONS tent at the expo.

Where should we park event day?

We have several NEW lots on Myers street this year AND a free parking shuttle! Check out all the parking details on our parking page with detailed maps on where to park event day.

Where do I pick up my bib and shirt?

Beat the race day rush and pick up your materials in advance of the race! All registered participants will receive a bib, tshirt, and goodie bag. If you can’t make it to any of the Expo days, don’t fret; you’re welcome to send a friend or family member to Expo to pick up your race day necessities – as long as they come armed with a copy of everyone’s ID and waiver.
