Race Day Tips
As you prepare for your 5K, here are some tips to make sure you're race-ready.
Don't stuff yourself. You don't have to carbohydrate load for a 5K race. Overeating may lead to gastrointestinal distress or other issues. Just eat normal-size portions of a regular, healthy dinner the night before. Try to stick to foods that you've eaten—nothing new.
Follow your routine. The golden rule of racing is: Nothing new on race day. Make sure that you're wearing clothes and gear that you've already tested during training runs. You don't want to be surprised by uncomfortable clothes or painful chafing issues on race day. If you've never raced before, learn how to put your race bib on before the race.
Do a little warmup. In a shorter race like a 5K, it's a good idea to do a warmup, so you slowly raise your heart rate and get your muscles warmed up. About 15 minutes before the race start, do a slow jog for about five minutes or do some warmup exercises, then walk briskly to the starting line.

Run you own pace and enjoy your brisk walk or fun run! 


Is there water at the event?

Yes! There's water stations on the course and at the finish line. 


You are at your own risk. All we ask is that you start from the back of the race.
