5 Dollar 5K - August

Tuesday August 11th, 2020

Winston-Salem, NC

Official Website


The $5- 5k is designed as a low-key race for the athletes who want to run a tune-up race to prepare for their targeted event, the novice who may be intimidated by the larger events and runners/walkers who want an event to test themselves without breaking the bank.

Race  Fee Notes:
The race fee is $5 and you must pre-register online.

Twin City Track Club Members will receive a full race discount of $5 for all $5 5K races - unlimited usage.

What you get:

  • A 5k course that is accurate and well-marked

  • Aid stations on the course and finish area that have water and Gatorade

  • Mile Markers 

  • Clock at the finish line

  • Accurate finishing times posted at the event and uploaded to the TCTC website ASAP

  • Support for all levels of runners or walkers

What you don’t get:

  • T-Shirts – don’t you have a closetful already?

  • Food at the finish area, unless a local establishment wants to provide something – any takers?

  • Verbal splits, unless we have a plethora of volunteers

  • Medals or trophies – we may have gift certificates that are awarded based on varying criteria


  • The events will occur at Jamison Park, which is located next to Meadowlark School (401 Meadowlark Dr.)  The course is a flat out and back on the Muddy Creek Greenway that starts at Jamison Park, turns around at Robinhood Rd and returns to the Park. This is a PR course for the competitive and nice easy course for the novice.
