MEN & WOMEN WILL BE DIVIDED INTO THE FOLLOWING AGE GROUPS:
*You must be 14 years of age or older and in good health to participate in the run
WAVE START: The start will consist of separate waves. Waves will be mixed gender, mixed ages, and include teams except for the first two waves at 8AM and 8:15AM. These are for highly competitive runners looking to post the fastest times. To run in these waves, you should expect to complete the 5k obstacle course in less than 40 minutes. You will be electronically timed and automatically scored in the appropriate age group. The first wave will start at 8:00AM and be followed by another wave every 15 minutes. Your wave start time will be determined at the time you register, and will be on a first come, first served basis.
AWARDS: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and top 3 female individual finishers per age group, and to the fastest overall finisher. Trophies will be awarded in the festival area after the final wave is completed. You must be present to receive your trophy. Awards will not be mailed.
COSTUMES: We also encourage participants to dress up any way you wish. Anything goes except nudity, profanity, or otherwise tasteless attire. Please use your best judgment so we dont have to. Be creative, and you may be rewarded with prizes.
ENTRY FEES: All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Once we accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else.
CONFIRMATION: Entries will be confirmed by e-mail if a valid email address is provided. If you mail in your entry, your canceled check or credit card charge is your receipt. If you do not receive an email confirmation it may be due to spam filters or firewalls on your computer. Entries may also be confirmed online at the registration link.
