Event Information
General Race Information
Join Advocates on Sunday, May 5, 2024 to celebrate all abilities. Help spread the message that a person with any challenge or disability is a person, not a diagnosis. See the person! See the individual! See me!

Bring the whole family! Family-friendly activities include a fun run, face painting, balloon animals, games, and more. Refreshments will be provided.

This year's race will include prizes for both individuals and teams. Individual prizes include those for overall top finishers (male, female, and non-binary), and top finishers by gender in the following age categories: 12 and under; 13-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; and 60+.

There will be FOUR team prizes this year:

1) BIGGEST TEAM: Biggest team represented at the race wins! Check in at 10 a.m. at the registration desk for a head count! Team can consist of participants of the 5K, 1-mile and kids fun run! All team members must be present to win!
2) FASTEST 5K TEAM: The fastest four 5K times from the team are added together.
3) MOST CREATIVE TEAM NAME: Names that give us a chuckle earn extra points!
4) MOST TEAM SPIRIT: Show your team pride and camaraderie by cheering each other on, wearing team outfits, and making noise!
