Fifteen (15) minutes prior to start of the 5K run, traffic will be re-routed to the north entry gate to the SIPI campus. This will add 10 minutes to getting to the race start line. Once the race begins this will be a closed course, therefore your arrival early to the event is highly encouraged even if you are coming for the later events.

Please allow plenty of time for parking and packet pick up. Please note, registration closes at 7:00am on 6/29.  NO EXCEPTIONS. Early Registration is also encouraged.  Early bird registration pricing for the 5K races in effect until May 5th.
