VENUE CHANGE: Due to construction on the trail and the closure of Case High School we have relocated this run to Racine's Lakefront.
The new location is located on the southside of the Doubletree Hotel on the boardwalk. This is between the Hotel and Lakeside Towers.
START: Saturday, 11.28.2020 - 10:00 am
You may need a little boost to rid your body of all that turkey, stuffing, wine and pumpkin pie you devoured on Thanksgiving.
Commit to staying healthy this Holiday season by participating in the Leftover 5k® run/walk on Saturday Nov. 28.
HELP US GET LEAN, TOO:
The route starts and finishes at the south end of the Double Tree Hotel and utilizes the Lake Michigan Pathway.
COVID 19 SAFETY PROTOCOL:
FACE MASKS ARE MANDATORY AT THIS EVENT. You must wear a face mask during this event. We will provide you a reusable mask. 10 Minutes prior to the start of the race you are asked to assemble near an orange traffic cone in the staging area. Each coned area should consist of groups of 10 or less participants. Each group will be released every 15 seconds to limit overcrowding on the trail. Slower run/walkers/strollers should stage near the rear.
AWARDS. To limit person to person contact, your finisher's Medal will be included in your race packet prior to the race. If you win your division, you may request your recognition pin be mailed to you (a $3.50 fee will apply), pick up at the next race, or pick up at our office in Racine. The top 3 male/female OVERALL runners will be mailed gift certificates automatically. Final results will be available about 11:30 am. You can view results LIVE at www.5Kevents.org and click on the race results tab. Remember this is a chip start, so a person's finishing order via Gun Start will not be the same as Chip Start. The race clock will represent the official Race start time but not your actual finish time. If your final time, gender, bib# or other data is incorrect on the final results, please notify the race director using our online correction form. PLEASE, Do not interrupt the timing crew during the event. You may submit corrections at: https://5kevents.org/result_correction.html. While results will be immediately posted online at www.5Kevents.org, results will not be official for 48 Hours. This will allow us to make corrections, but also time for our staff to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday as well.
RACE BIBS / TIMING: We utilize a shoe tag system. You must wear your shoe tags and race bib in order to be timed. Those who do not wear them, or wear them improperly will be disqualified and asked to leave the course as we will not know if you are included in the race (this is for insurance purposes). Pull tabs will not be utilized to limit person to person contact. See image below for proper wearing. Tie one on the left shoe, one on the right. No tags, no time. Race bibs must be worn and visible at all times. Wear bibs front facing.
HAVE FUN! Help us make this event successful, Social distance, wear your mask and enjoy the outdoors for what should be a beautiful day.
THANK YOU! Please make an extra effort to thank the Volunteers. Without them this event would not have happened this year! They will all be stressed out, so a "Thank you" can be extremely motivating and keeps them coming back.
There will be plenty of parking at the Gaslight Point Parking Ramp.
All participants will receive a "Leftover" custom finisher's medal of their choice. Top three male and female participants will be recognized, as well as the top male and female in respective 5 year age groups.
If you have any "leftover" canned goods (non-perishable food items of all kinds are welcome - the "leftover" is us being silly), we welcome you to bring them to the event. We will donate them to a the Racine County Food Bank. Thank you to those that are generous throughout the year!
