=====FINISH TIMES/AWARDS WILL BE BASED ON GUN TIME=====
JUST A COUPLE RACE RULES

Strollers are welcome but we ask that you line up at the rear behind the runners.  And as much as we love dogs, for your safety and your dog’s safety, dogs are prohibited on the 5 mile course.  We would like to say this is a closed course (intersections around the 5 mile course will be blocked to traffic); however, we cannot guarantee that you will not encounter one of the locals trying to leave their residence during the race. So, for your safety we recommend not wearing headphones. 

This is a rain or shine, heat & humidity event.  The average low is 64 degrees, the average high is 85 degrees.

We are not responsible for registrations lost in the mail. We strongly encourage those who sign up using a paper registration to do so before Saturday, May 25, 2019. Check the list of participants for your name - if you do not see your name, you are not registered.

Sorry but there will be no refunds and no transfers. 

Photographers will be taking pictures race day. If you attend this event your picture may be used on Coopertown Festival related Facebook pages, websites and media pieces in perpetuity.
  
THE COURSE

Watch the left side of the roadway where you’ll see Mile Markers spray painted in yellow on the pavement.

The start line is directly behind City Hall. To get a nice 5 mile loop course (without doing a boring out-and-back) we’ll start off by running on a short 200 feet long gravel path until we make that right turn onto Burgess Gower.  Since the 5 Miler has a common start/finish that means we'll run that same 200 feet of gravel to get back to the finish line.
