Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What if my child just wants to do the Kids' Super Dash, do they still need to be registered?  Due to liability issues, yes, all participants must be registered.  

  2. Can I use a stroller for the 5K? Yes, please register everyone who will be participating.

  3. How far is the Kids' Super Dash? The Kids' Super Dash is a short walk/dash around the shorter loop of the park--we have volunteers along the course and it usually takes around 10 minutes for the kiddos to complete the dash.

  4. Do we need to register separately for both the Kids' Super Dash and the full 5K?  No, all registrations are good for both the Kids' Super Dash and the full 5K--children are welcome to participate in the full 5K and caregivers are welcome to do the Kids' Super Dash with their kiddos. Only one registration per person for the entire event is needed.

  5. What does my registration include? All registrations include both the Kids' Super Dash and full 5K, t-shirt, goodie bag (until gone), age bracket medals for full 5K (if participant places), free (through download) professional race photos, and lots of fun activities!

  6. Can I bring my dog?  To ensure the safety of all participants and we recognize not everyone enjoys four legged friends, please no dogs.  However, service and therapy dogs are welcome.
