Happily, we will be at the Elkhart Health & Aquatics, 200 East Jackson in 2022. There is plenty of parking and the race starting line will be on Jackson and Clark. The start line is Jackson Blvd & Clark.)
We will have a chip start, so for those who purchase timing chips and want to keep track of their times, you chip time begins when you cross the mat, not when the “gun” goes off.
We encourage people to spread out and allow the faster runners towards the front of the line. We will have pace signs, and if you start with your pace, this will help a great deal! We strongly encourage runners to wear masks at the start, put on your wrist once you get going, and replace when you finish to get refreshments. Please don’t throw masks down at the start, it might be a trip hazard at the finish line.
The loop course will be the same as last year. As always, if you are walking or running with a group- please make sure there is room for others to pass. The two distances separate on and then re-merge on Strong Avenue @ Pleasant.
NOTE: There is NO official awards ceremony, and no age group awards. However if you choose to be chip-timed, there are awards for the top three male and female finishers, which we will mail to you in addition to a free entry to the race next year. Every participant gets a finisher medal.
Every participant will get a finisher award at the end of the race. Simply go through the finisher chute and keep moving to the refreshment area.
$25 cash for the first male and female to “Catch the Turkey” in the 5K. [Not a real turkey, there is a person dressed up who will get a head start. This is on the honor system. You don’t have to touch our turkey rabbit, just pass it.]
Yes. We need volunteers! You can volunteer AND run on the day. We need help on Monday to sort and stuff group packets and virtual packets. We also need help for packet pickup at Elkhart Health & Aquatics on Wednesday, November 23 from Noon – 7pm (you can pick the time you are available).
