    • Hi Diane,
      We will be solidifying start time at our committee meeting next week, but we are looking at a 7 pm start time for the 5k based on feedback from last years’ attendees. We will hold a registration packet pickup the day before, and then there will be a packet pickup the day of the race at beginning at 4 pm.


    • Hi Bethany,

      Unfortunately, we do not have finishing medals at this event. However, as part of your race entry, you do receive a free beverage of choice (pop or beer from Founders Brewing company), as well as different treats at the after-race Summer Celebration. As it is a fundraiser for Blandford Nature Center, we wanted to help raise funds without making the registration fee cost-prohibitive. We hope you can join us!
