Tater Trot 5K Racine County Race Description

Racine County Deputy Joshua "Tater" LaForge 1st Annual Memorial 5K Run/Walk

Join us for a 5K run/walk in honor of Racine County Deputy Joshua "Tater" LaForge, who tragically passed away on July 4, 2023. Josh served the Racine County community as a Law Enforcement Officer for over 18 years. He first served with the City of Racine as an Officer, Motor Officer, Investigator, and finally Sergeant before moving to the Racine County Sheriff's Office in January of 2023 where he was serving as a Deputy at the time of his passing. This event celebrates Tater's life and service to the community while raising funds to show support for his law enforcement family.

All proceeds from the event will benefit:

  • Tater's Law Enforcement family: Providing support to his brothers and sisters in law enforcement through various events.

Together, we can remember Tater's legacy and make a positive impact on the lives of those he cared about.

EARN YOUR REGISTRATION BACK: While the race is an amazing experience itself, it's even better when you have friends join you! Once you sign up, you can begin referring friends and family to join you.

Here's how it works: 

1) Sign up for the race. Once you complete your registration, you'll receive a unique URL link to share. 

2) Share this unique link with friends and family as often as you'd like.

3) Each time someone signs up through your link, you'll accrue one referral. Earn fifteen referrals and get the remainder of your base registration fee credited back. Easy peasy!

  • Participate for FREE if you send us 15 referrals

Stay up-to-date on race results!

Head to www.5Kevents.org and click the "Race Results" tab to follow LIVE updates. Remember, this is a chip-timed event, so the finishing order based on the gun start may differ from chip times. The race clock reflects the official start, not your individual finish time.

Spot an error? If your final time, gender, bib number, or other details are incorrect in the final results, please use our online correction form within 48 hours: https://5kevents.org/result_correction.html.

Please note: During the event, let the timing crew work their magic uninterrupted. We appreciate your cooperation!


5Kevents Race Bibs

Shoe Tags Are Your Ticket to Race!

For accurate timing, all participants must wear both their race bib and shoe tags. Those missing or improperly wearing either tag will be disqualified and asked to leave the course. This ensures safety and accurate race data (insurance requirements).

Say goodbye to pull tabs! We're keeping things contactless: tie one shoe tag to each shoe (left and right). No tags, no time!

Don't forget your bib! Wear it visibly on the front at all times.


  • Both bib and shoe tags are mandatory for timing.
  • Tie one shoe tag to each shoe (left and right).
  • Wear your bib visibly on the front.
  • Missing or improper wear leads to disqualification.

Run with confidence, run with tags!

We Got You Covered! (But No Refunds, Sorry )

Life throws curveballs, we get it. But unfortunately, refunds are not possible for our events, even for blizzards, tsunamis, locust attacks, or forgetting you signed up for the wrong race (it happens!). We pour our hearts (and a lot of resources) into making these events amazing, and sadly, refunds wouldn't be sustainable.

But don't despair! We've got some awesome alternatives to keep you in the action:

  • Spread the word: Refer friends and score discounts or even free entry!
  • Pass the torch: Transfer your bib to a lucky buddy (they'll owe you big!).
  • Upgrade your style: Swap your shirt size before it's too late.
  • Conquer a different date: Defer your registration to another event.
  • Challenge yourself: Change your distance – go shorter or even longer!

Have a unique "excuse" for needing a refund? We're open to hearing it! Share it with us on social media, and we might just feature it in our next policy update.

Remember, participating in our events is all about community, fun, and pushing your limits. While refunds aren't on the menu, we hope these options help you stay involved and create unforgettable memories on race day!
