Name That Gator

There's a gator in the pond by the Start/Finish (if you squint you can see him). The best name suggestion for our reptilian friend will win a prize. 


Both courses are out and back. The 5K and 5 miles races will proceed on the same course with the 5K turnaround point at ap­proximately 1.5 miles and the 5 miles turnaround point at about 2.5 miles. 

Switching Races

$10 on race morning. If you start the race and decide to switch to a different distance, we can switch you after you finish. How­ever, runners with after-race start switches will not be in the results on race day and will not be eligible for any awards. The final results will be corrected. 


Do not bend or fold your bib, this can interfere with getting the correct time. All participants must wear their bib on the front in a way that it can be seen by course officials. The timing tag is attached to the back of your bib. Do not forget your bib on race morning. NO BIB, NO TIME. If you forget your bib, you will need to pay $10 to replace it. Non-registered runners and/or bandit runners will be removed from the course. No one will be allowed to finish the race without a bib. 

Race Etiquette

Line up at the starting line according to how fast you plan to run or walk the event. Slower runners and walkers should move to the back of the race pack. Run or walk no more than two abreast.

Course Markers

Visible mile markers will be positioned along the course. Volun­teer course monitors will be positioned to provide help and direc­tions along the course. 

Race Time Limit

90 minutes


Awards will be given for overall, master, grandmaster, and senior grandmaster male and female winners for the 5-mile race only. Age group commemorative awards (5-year age groups, males and females) will be given for both 5K and 5-mile races. 


The official race photographer will be on the course and at the finish. Make sure you smile for the photographer! Smiley faces will likely end up on our Facebook page or on our marketing materials.

Water Stations

There will be water stations along the race course. The 5K run will have two water stops and the 5-mile run will have four wa­ter stops. Water stops will offer water, Gatorade and/or sponges/ towels, and/or water hoses. In addition, a cooling station with cold towels will be located prior to the last water stop. Medical aid will be available at the finish line and a SAG wagon will moni­tor the race. 

Headphone Policy

The RRCA (Running Alliance Sport's insurance provider) has a written guideline against the use of personal music devices in running events, as such we strongly discourage the use of headphones in our races. However, if you do choose to wear them we ask you use only one earbud.

Finish Line

Keep moving after you cross the finish line. Results will be posted on-site and also on the official website. Finisher's medal will be awarded just outside the finish chute. All finishers will receive a finisher's medal. Results will be posted on-site and also at the of­ficial website at

Post-Race Party

There will be lots of food, fun, and entertainment for your en­joyment. Only race participants are eligible for the contests. For further information about the contests, please contact us on our website. 


After the race, we will be holding our annual Six Pack Abs male and female contests, and costume contest. Only race participants are eligible for the contests. For further information about the contests, please contact us on our website.
