Drop Off

Difficulty Walking?
If you arrive before 7:00am and have a loved one with a tough time walking or in a wheelchair, you can drop them off right at the event site. Just pull over on Church street at the park, let our volunteers know and then move your car to a nearby parking deck.

Dropping off Team Tents/Materials?
Come by Friday evening between 4-7pm and you can drop off your tent, chairs, tables, etc. We will have overnight security to watch your stuff! Don’t set up your tent, just in case there’s wind, until the morning of the event.

This year, the 10K will NOT be a double loop of the 5K. It will continue on out past the 5K turn around and then return to the finish.
