– 10K (6.2 mile) & 5K (3.1 mile): run/jog/walk/roll starts at 8:00 am. All ages welcome. No awards or official results will be given to runners NOT wearing the appropriate bib–changing races without notifying officials to receive the correct bib will result in disqualification. We have contracted with the Carpet Capital Running Club to chip-time these events. If you do not purchase a bib, you will not be timed. You may not run the 10K with a 5K bib (or vice versa). There is a $5 fee to change your registration after April 27. For registration changes, come to Bradley Wellness Center on Friday, May 10 from 12pm-8pm or Saturday, May 11 starting at 6:30am. Everyone that crosses the finish line in any event will receive a special edition NGHP 25th Anniversary Participation Medal.
