The Run for Justice 5k will again feature ChronoTrack System timing. The event will also include a kids' fun run and family friendly post-race activities, including our famous post race buffet. All participants in the 5k race will receive a premium T-shirt. All kids participating in the fun run will receive a medal.

Post-Race Refreshments

Kids Fun Run

There will be a noncompetitive fun run for kids beginning at 8:30 am. Medals awarded to all finishers. 

 

Timing

The ChronoTrack timing system will be used to score the race. The system uses a disposable B-tag, which must be secured to runners' shoelaces, and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line as well as the finish line, resulting in a net, or "Chip" time for each runner. Overall awards will be based on the "clock time," and age group awards will be based on "Chip time." 

Water Stations

In addition to water at the start/finish, water will be available on the course just past the half-way point.

 

Parking

Parking will be available in adjacent lots. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Join in the fun as an event volunteer! This event relies on 50+ volunteers to be successful and we need YOUR help. Volunteer jobs include water station, race buffet, registration area, or course marshals on race day. We will also need volunteers at packet pick up.
