Make It a Family Event!

Our annual walk-for-life will be taking place on a different trail at the same location that day. If you have members of your family that would like to come but do not want to run, please consider participating in our 2 mile walk at your own pace! It would be great for those with strollers or young children and would make a great nature walk! Sign up for the walk here.

Additionally, if you are running in the 5K and would like to help us raise more money by finding sponsors, please get your sponsor page here.

Are there any age limits?

No, we trust parents to know the limitations of their children, and we welcome anyone of any age who would like to participate. However, a waiver must be signed by a parent for anyone running under the age of 18, and anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

What happens in case of bad weather?

The race and walk go on regardless of rain, wind, or temperature. If there is thunder or lightning, we will delay the race until it passes. Feel free to bring an umbrella if you will be walking!

What is the refund policy?

Because this is a fundraising event, there will be no refunds. We will consider it a donation to our organization. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us.

Can I register the day of the race?

Yes, you can; however, the cost will increase to $35, and there will be no guarantee of your choice of t-shirt size. Plus, it will take you more time the day of the race so plan to arrive early.
