If you have never participated in a half marathon and or a 5k race before it is recommended to check with your doctor to see if you’re in good health to participate in a half marathon or 5k race. Then go out and buy some new running shoes and start training a few weeks in advance of a race. It is worth the challenge of making through a race to say that one has accomplished it. Once you get hooked, you will want to participate in more 5k races. Most new race participants do a combination of running and walking to make it through a race with an average time of 40-50 minutes to complete a 5k race. Track Shack motto is safety is our first priority. Check event website to view all restrictions.

On race day, it is recommended to arrive early. Please note there are two different USATF-certified racecourses. One is for the marathon and the other is for the 5k. To view both racecourse please visit www.trackshack.com/event/102/course .

Before a runner hit’s the finish line, you’ll see spectators cheering you on. Plus, runners will notice professional photographers at the finish line to taking your photo while one crosses the line. Don’t forget to get your finisher’s metal once you cross the line. It is a great souvenir to remember this race. Plus, race participants will be notified by email when photos are ready for viewing!
