The New Year's 5K traditionally welcomes over 100 participants. Due to current and anticipated state restrictions on event size, we will be utilizing a wave start format to keep group sizes at the starting line under 50.
Upon registration, each participant will need to indicate whether they intend to run, walk, or run/walk the event and provide an estimated 5K finish time. Participants will then be sorted into waves based on either estimated finish time or age group. The final determination on wave start format will be made the week of the race and wave start times will be emailed out on 12/30/20 and posted on this page.

Female: 13 & Under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 & Older
Your age group classification is based on your age on the day of the race.
Age Group Awards will be provided for the top 3 men and women in their age group.
First Overall Male and First Overall Female will receive additional prizes.
In order to accommodate existing state restrictions on event/group size, we will not be holding our traditional award ceremony and raffle following the event.
