Competitive vs Recreational
In the 5K, runners can enter as either a competitive entrant or a recreational entrant. Competitive entrants will be issued a chip, will receive an official timer and be eligible for awards. Recreational runners will not receive an official time and will not be eligible for awards. However, there will be a digital clock at the finish line where all participants can see their finishing times.
In the 5K, awards will be presented to the top three males overall, to the top three females overall, to the top three master finishers of each sex, and to the top three finishers in each of the following age groups: (both sexes) 9-under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80-over.
