***Thanks to everyone for following us around the planet to different locations! ***
We are BACK at the Concord Mall this year because we learned in August that our Start/Finish line on Jackson Street [by the Elkhart Health & Aquatics Center] would be under construction making it impossible to have the race at the same location as last year.
There is NO official awards ceremony, however if you choose to be chip-timed, there are awards for the top five male and female finishers, which we will mail to you in addition to a free entry to the race next year. Every participant gets a finisher medal.
Every participant will get a finisher award at the end of the race. Simply go through the finisher chute and get your goody bag.
The course is SIMILAR to two years ago, starting and finishing at Concord Mall. What is new:
- Start line and finish line are separated to allow for social distancing
- 5K goes counter clockwise in Green Valley neighborhood and we added a little piece in there to cover the distance for moving the start and finish line apart.
- Masks must be worn through the finish chute where you will pick up your food goody bag (contains your medal) and you can keep on walking through.
Yes. We need volunteers. You can volunteer AND run on the day. We need help on Monday to sort and stuff group packets and virtual packets. We also need help for packet pickup at Concord Mall on Wednesday, November 25 from Noon – 7pm (you can pick the time you are available).

For those that elect chip timing, you can get your finish time texted to you. Since we have eight starting times, we will not know the actual fastest finish times until about 10:45 am on Race Day. These times will be posted immediately. If you were one of the top five finishers we will mail you your prizes.
