Exclusive 5K Creative Categories:
Not sure you can win your age bracket? NOW is your chance to earn a prize and well deserved recognition.
Best Parent Child Finishline Performance: Kids get your parents to loosen up a bit and have some fun, lets make that finish line memorable, as you perform for a chance at a special prize! Parent(s) and their child(ren) must be together at the finishline, finishing at the most seconds a part for the judges to consider their performance. Costumes are encouraged but not required. Extra style points will be given for spins, cartwheels, dance moves, skipping, leaping, pirouettes, and big smiles. IDEAS
Stroller Racer: So you have a little one that has changed your life, but you still want to stay fit and enjoy some quality time with them. Well the pioneers went over 1,000 miles pushing and pulling creaky wood hand carts. You can cover a few miles in that slick jogging stroller. Most of the course is on a hard surface with a few patches of grass to negotiate, no icy river crossings, sand traps, or rocky ridges. Our course is smooth and relatively flat.
Canine Runner: Top dog finishers with their owner (on leash) will earn a prize. The dog must be a living breathing dog that walks/runs on their own paws, (sorry no stuffed animals).
