Package Pickup & Race Registration at Gwynn’s Island Civic Center, 1995 Old Ferry Road, Gwynn, VA 23066
- Friday 6/23/2017 at the Gwynn’s Island Festival Chicken Dinner from 5:00-7:00pm OR
- Saturday 6/24/2017 – Race Day morning 7:00-8:15am
Race Day registration will end promptly at 8:15am on the 24th so we can get all runner information into our database & timing system. 1 Mile participants should be prepared and at the start line at 8:30am also; 8k & 5k participants will take off at 8:30am and the 1 Milers at 8:40am.
The 5k & 8k racers will start together – we’ve set up the course so you can decide just before the 3 mile mark whether or not you want to do 5k or 8k. All racers will have their age posted on their back: as you are running the course, check out your competition. Let’s say that someone in your age group is ahead of you and opts for the 5k… you can veer off to the 8k route at the last minute (possibly increasing your shot at an award?). Strategy.
Speaking of awards, we have the same prizes this year – our Solar Powered Hula Girls & Surfer Boys – for the top male & female finishers in the 8k & 5k, and top 3 in each age group. Definitely worth running hard for!
