General Information

null

Starting at trendy Market Common, the Coastal 5K features a loop course through this beautiful village setting, finishing at majestic Grand Park Lake.

As with the half marathon, this course is FLAT & FAST!

NEW for 2021, we will be introducing a Rucking division for the 5K and Half Marathon distance. This is an official https://goruck.com race. Learn more about it at https://www.goruck.com/rucking-101. All participants will receive a GORUCK patch and the top 3 male and female participants will get an award!

The requirements: Wear a Ruck/backpack with the standard weight-10# for participants 150 lbs. and under, and 20# for those over 150 lbs. Your ruck will be weighed at the beginning of the race. No participants will be weighed, weight requirements are on the honor system. Most females carry 10# and most males carry 20#. Weighted vests are NOT permitted unless you have the GORUCK Ruck Plate Carrier. That will be accepted. You must wear a backpack with the weight on your back at all times during the race. GoRuck participants must complete the 5K in 1 hour or less.

Runners and walkers are welcome. The time limit for the 5K race is 1 hour. Strollers are also welcome. No dogs allowed on the course. Dogs are welcome for the Doggie Dash.
