How long will the 5k run take?
Finishing times vary of course, but our fastest runners will complete the run in less than 25 minutes. Most runners (including GOTR Girls) will fall between 30-45 minutes. We will be sweeping the course at one hour from the starting time to ensure all runners have returned to the starting area.
Are there water stations available?
There are two water stations on the course. Runners are also encouraged to bring water bottles along on the course. Additional water and snacks will be available at the finish line.
Where should I park?
Parking is available throughout Shelby Park, including at the Community Center and Shelby Bottoms Nature Center. Please plan to arrive early, carpool or consider taking a Lyft or Uber to the 5K.
Can I bring my dog or pet?
For safety, all furry friends are not allowed on the course or at the event, so please leave all pets at home on 5K day! All pets will be asked to return to the pet owner's vehicle if spotted at the event.
