We will be timing the race using the MyLaps BibTag System. Your timing chip is on the back of your bib. It is very important that the bib is worn on the front torso of each participant. If you lose, forget or misplace your bib on race day, there is a $5.00 replacement fee. No chip, no time.
Parking is also available on the large surface lot at Court Street & Exchange, but there is very limited parking in this lot.
There will be bathrooms inside the Blue Cross Arena. The bathrooms on the upper floors will only be available until the race starts (8:30 am).
Do not leave any personal belongings on any of the upper floors while you race, since we will not have access to these floors once the race starts.
Post Race Food
After the race, join us inside the Blue Cross Arena for post race goodies.
We will be presenting Overall & Age Group Awards for the 5K at the Awards Ceremony. The theme of the Reindeer Run Awards goes along with the theme of our Holiday Toy Drive for the Salvation Army. We have made awards to liken the "Island of the MisFit Toys". The Top 3 Men and Women and Top 3 in 5 Year Age Groups will get a very unique and specially "crafted" trophy with action figure tops.
We will be doing the awards presentation at 9:45 am in the Blue Cross Arena lobby.
