$5 5K

 $5-5K - 2020 Race Series

Series scoring will track results for all seven $5 5K races in 2020 and award points based on overall and age group placement.  Awards will be presented at the end of the season based upon cumulative points for the entire series. 

Click here for Races Series information, results and registration.

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
