The health and safety of participants and volunteers are our top priority. We ask that runners, walkers, volunteers, staff and spectators follow CDC guidelines and refrain from participation if at risk for illness, experiencing signs of illness or returning from restricted travel alert locations. Guidance may change at any time and participants will be notified accordingly. 

All participants registered by February 27 will receive a performance t-shirt.

Absolutely! Walkers are welcome. The race course closes at 9:45 am 

No wheels permitted on the race course 

Unfortunately, pets are not permitted to join the fun.  

All persons (including children) who participate in the 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk will need to be a registered participant. The only exception is an infant or toddler (3 years or younger) who remains in a stroller for the duration of the 5K or 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk.

The more the merrier! Please consider setting a fundraising goal and help support Clarke. Our DIY Kit offers guidance and links.
