$5 5K

 $5-5K - 2021 Race Series

NOTE: The 2021 Race Series is still in the planning stages. Stay tuned for future updates as we continue to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on our races. Updated 2/18/2021

In normal years, this is how it works:
Series scoring is derived from the results for all seven $5 5K races in the year. Points are awarded based on overall and age group placement.  Awards are presented at the end of the season based upon cumulative points for the entire series.

The $5- 5k is designed as a low-key race for the athletes who want to run a tune-up race to prepare for their targeted event, the novice who may be intimidated by the larger events and runners/walkers who want an event to test themselves without breaking the bank.

What you get:

  • A 5k course that is accurate and well-marked
  • Aid stations on the course and finish area that have water and Gatorade
  • Mile Markers 
  • Clock at the finish line
  • Accurate finishing times available at the event and uploaded to TCTC online results nearly real-time
  • Support for all levels of runners or walkers

What you don’t get:

  • T-Shirts – don’t you have a closetful already?
  • Food at the finish area, unless a local establishment wants to provide something – any takers?
  • Verbal splits, unless we have a plethora of volunteers
  • Medals or trophies – we may have gift certificates that are awarded based on varying criteria

The events will occur at Jamison Park, which is located next to Meadowlark School (401 Meadowlark Dr.) The course is a flat out and back on the Muddy Creek Greenway that starts at Jamison Park, turns around at Robinhood Rd and returns to the Park. This is a PR course for the competitive and nice easy course for the novice.
