Frequently Asked Questions


On RACE DAY packets will be available at the Start/Finish area below Rosehill Community Center from 6:15 to 7:40am.


CAN I REGISTER ON RACE DAY?  Yes, assuming spots are still available.  Race Day registration will be available from 6:15-7:40 ONLY at the Start/Finish area.  See Home page for Race Day pricing  - cash preferred, credit cards with 3% surcharge.   Goodie bags and medals are not guaranteed.  Registration will close at 7:40 or when our participant cap is reached.

WILL GEAR CHECK BE AVAILABLE?   Yes - Gear can be checked at the Start/Finish area up until the start of the race.  We discourage checking valuables and instead recommend leaving them at home or hidden in your locked car.

ARE DOGS OR STROLLERS ALLOWED ON THIS COURSE?  Pets are not allowed on this event due to insurance restrictions.  ONLY SINGLE STROLLERS ARE ALLOWED due to course restrictions. Those lining up with wide double strollers will be asked to remain at the Start/Finish line to cheer in the runners rather than participate in the event.  


ARE HEADPHONES ALLOWED?  The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this event.  If you must use them  we STRONGLY suggest using only one earbud and keeping the volume low enough to be able to hear Course Marshall and Safety Monitor instructions while running.  This is not a closed course.

WILL THERE BE BATHROOMS ON THE COURSE?  Restrooms are available inside Rosehill Community Center only.

IS THERE A COURSE TIME LIMIT?  Since only a very small portion of our route is closed to traffic we do not have a course time limit for either the 5k or 10k events.  We do however need to be cleared out of the Community Center by 11:30 and we really, really want to be there to greet you when you cross the finish line!  Please plan on meeting or exceeding a 21 to 22 minute per mile pace to make sure you get all the recognition you deserve when you are done.  We will have crew members walking both the 5k and 10k courses as "sweep" so you will never be left to walk alone out there, regardless of your pace.

TIMING  Your race time will be recorded using RFID chip technology.  Be sure to pin your chip on the outside of your clothing between your hip and your knee so that the antennas pick you up.   Please wear your bib on the FRONT of your clothing when you cross the Finish Line.  It is vital that you start in your assigned wave to receive an accurate finish time!

AWARDS and CELEBRATION  Our Awards Ceremony will begin promptly at 9:15 am.  Please stick around for awards and to cheer the last participant across the finish line.  Invite your friends and family to come and see you finish.  Drop a few hints along the way about how much you'd love to have flowers or balloons at the finish line!  And don't forget to mention how much you'd like to see a sign with your name on it there too!

Recognition of top 3 overall male and female finishers in the timed 5K & 10K Runs will be presented on race day.

Top 3 male and female finishers in each age division will receive a gift - see Timers Table to pick up.  6-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+
