Frequently Asked Questions

Will the race be timed?

Is this a dog friendly event?

Yes, your dog is a welcome addition to the race.  Please keep your dog on a leash at all times, and of course, please clean up after your pet. Since this is a public park dogs are welcome but please be thoughtful regarding your dogs’ ability to socialize with large amounts of people.  We will not have water set up for dogs at our water stations so please supply your own dog water.

This event is in the mountains, how hilly is it?

We aren’t called Indian Hills for nothing!  This race as a decent rise in elevation with an average around 7280 Feet.  Walking is always allowed of course, and you get to brag that you’ve participated in what we believe is the toughest 5k in the foothills!  This course will test the limits of even the most experienced runners, however we’ve had 7-year-olds run this 5k from start to finish.

In the race stroller-friendly?

Absolutely, this race is paved from start to finish and it is easy to maneuver on all the roads.

Can kids run this race?

Yes!  This is a family-friendly event and kids of all ages are welcome.  If you have tiny ones and need to bring a stroller, that’s no problem!

Kids can run in the 5k and in the Kid’s Fun Run.  The Kid’s Fun Run, however, is for children 10 or younger.  The Fun Run is a quarter mile in two heats, 5 and under and 6-10.  No registration is needed for the Kid’s Fun Run but if a child chooses to run the 5k registration is required.

Do we need to register for the separate Kid’s Fun Run?

Kids can run in the 5k and in the Kid’s Fun Run.  The Kid’s Fun Run, however, is for children 10 or younger.  The Fun Run is a quarter mile in two heats, 5 and under and 6-10.  No registration is needed for the Kid’s Fun Run but if a child chooses to run the 5k registration is required.
