Course description:

The course starts at the Stetson Hills Open Space trailhead at Dublin and Peterson and heads north on the trail toward 7-Eleven and then returns to the start. A nice up-then-down course. Rain, shine, or snow, the race will go.

Directions to start:

Race starts and finishes at the Stetson Hills Open Space at Dublin and Peterson.

Parking:

Carpooling is a great idea. Once you get to Dublin & Peterson, watch for directions from volunteers. First parking is at the trailhead parking area, second parking is at Imagine Classical Academy, after that at the Sunshine House and standard on-street parking. 

Here is the parking layout...

Raffles before and after the race.

Refunds:

Entry fees are non-refundable.

Walkers/Pets:

Walkers: Yes! Our belief is that a 5K is for runners and walkers both. All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have walkers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so no matter where you start, you'll still get your accurate times.

Pets: For the safety of all participants AND pets, no pets are allowed in the race.

Strollers:

In addition to running, we support health, fitness, babies, fun, etc. We'd love to have you! All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have strollers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so everyone, including those with strollers will still get their accurate times. There is no charge for stroller babies (they're not walking or running after all) and they will not get the shirt, goody bag, official times, etc.
