Additionally, keep an eye on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RFYL5k/?ref=bookmarks and website https://rfyl5k.org/ for announcements on additional packet pick-up times on the day before the race.

Course: The race begins and ends in the Pacific Northwest University (PNWU) parking lot. This course winds around follows along University Parkway before looping around Keys Rd and Terrace Heights Drive. Please be aware that no roads will be officially closed for this race, but we will have plenty of course marshalls available for your safety. Also, note, that just as in past years, the course does cross train tracks in two locations. Although we do not anticipate this to be a problem, we do not have control of the trains, and much like in past years, cannot guarantee that a train will not cross the course during the event. Portions of the course will be restricted to the sidewalk for the safety of participants and motorists. Water stations will be available at approximately miles 1 and 2. Please see map for details.

Timing and Awards: Just as in past years, there will be a large digital clock at the end of the course for runners to document their times. The first 15 finishers will be officially recorded, and prizes will be awarded to the top 3 runners, as well as the first place male and female finishers.

Post-Race: We will have a selection of post-race refreshments. Please stop by and see our Health Fair located on the Pacific Northwest University campus in Butler-Haney Hall. We will also be hosting a raffle and a free kids' fun run at the conclusion of the 5k. There is no sign up for the kids' run.

Parking: Parking is available at the start on the PNWU campus at 200 University Parkway, as well as across the street at Iron Horse Lodge.

Photos: Race photos will be posted on Facebook after the event.
