5Kevents Race Results

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. 

5Kevents Race Bibs

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.

 Zero to 5K 

New to running? DOWNLOAD our ZERO to 5K program - Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies rebel and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place. The Zero to 5K program has been specifically designed to instill a love of running and ends with participating in your first timed 5K. 

We’re here to help you achieve your goal(s), be it your first 5K, improving your run, or simply offering a resource where you can run with a group that is designed to help each other stay motivated. You should ease into your 5K training plan gradually. In fact, the program we provide is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from a non-runner, getting you to begin running a 5K ( or 3.1 miles) and on a regular basis in just 4 weeks.  

It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program, but hold yourself back. Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can. If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out. Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able. Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.

cheap looking shirts and medals, no sponsor booths setup...

I guess everything changes but I miss the good old days when you got a nice quality t-shirt with the large logo on the front and the sponsor names on the back and the beautiful (actual metal) medals you got back in the day. I still have running shirts from 20 years ago. I think 5Kevents is making promises they can't keep so they cheap out on the merch. No sponsor booths before / after the race, no water stations, they ran out of bananas. The volunteers stand and chit chat and don't really cheer you on. I'm willing to pay a bit more for better a better experience and for a good cause. I think they have a lot of growing up to do. I'll stick with the more established events. The Firecracker 5k in Kenosha last year was awesome! I don't think "we get our medals in China" is a valid excuse. I'm sure there are American made shops you can purchase these. Another reason I'm not into it. Ruins the whole experience and it's supposed to be fun and motivating. It's not.

Medal

Wish someone would have said the medal is not medal. Website says finishers medal which is deceiving. Cheap printed plastic is totally blindsiding experienced runners
