Special awards go to top male and female open, masters, and grandmasters finishers in 5K race. Age group awards go three deep in the 5K for 13 & under, 14-19, and then in 5 year increments going as high as necessary. Competitive race walkers are welcome to participate, but will not be considered a separate division.
We will be using tag timing for the 5K event. Runners will be given a timing tag with instructions for use. An electronic mat at the start and finish lines will record times as runners complete the race. Timing tags are disposable.
