You offer a discount on registration to military personnel – does the discount apply to dependents?

Due to the new race format, all race registrations are the same cost for 2020.

We understand and appreciate the sacrifices that dependents make as their sponsors serve our Nation. Active, Guard, Reserve or Dependent – we offer you the discount with our thanks for your service.


Is there a deadline for registration for the 5K?

You may register anytime between now and the end of the year for 2020 to participate in this “virtual race”.

Registration will be open until the morning of the race, or when 500 runners register, whichever occurs first.


How are the race proceeds used?

This is a charity event put on by volunteers from North Banks Rotary Club. All net proceeds are donated to charitable organizations and youth programs. Please see our Beneficiaries page for more details. 


Tell me more about the free beer!

Unfortunately we will not be offering a social gathering this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Coastal Beverage Company are very generous in supporting the race financially and with their great beer. Kegs open at the Start-Finish area for 5K race runners age 21 and older after they finish the race. Beer is available only for runners and paid party attendees age 21 and older. IDs will be checked.


Can I get lost on the course?
The course is out and back, and there will be race volunteers at turns – It would be very difficult to get lost. Anything is possible, but if you get lost on this course, you will be the first to do so.
