The Pop up 5k events are a fun, safe way to keep you motivated to run through the summer, to help you reach your fitness goals, raise money for Bill Moore Community Park, AND spend some fun outdoors with your friends and family in a fun, welcoming and non-intimidating race setting… all while staying socially distanced throughout the entire race.

Our iDaph Team will be at Bill Moore Community Park (formerly Fletcher Park) every 2nd and 4th Wednesday in June, July & August, starting on Wednesday, June 23rd!

With a rolling start from 6-7:30 pm, there are no crowds! For just $15, you get a fully-marked course, a race number with chip timing, and your results will be posted online on our Race Roster page. You can add a medal for $10 or a Run Local shirt for $15 to an individual race, or sign up for all five races in the series and get both the shirt and medal included in registration!
 

A FACE COVERING IS REQUIRED BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR RUN, BUT NOT DURING! 

This in-person running event is socially distanced, family-friendly, and dog friendly! Our goal is to provide a safe, exciting running event for all of us who’ve been stuck at home over the last few months. There will be prizes along the way, awesome Run Local swag available, and flexible options for all types of runners. All of us here at iDaph Events are happy to be back in action, and we hope to see you there!

The Event Includes: 

• Register for the race from home or at the event from your phone.
• Show up to the Fletcher Park pavilion anytime from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM to pick up your bib.
• The races will have a rolling start (i.e. no mass start or congregating of any sort at the start line) from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Once you’ve picked up your bib, you can start whenever you like during that time frame! The event will be scored on chip time, so there will be no pressure to start earlier or later in the evening.
• To adhere to public health guidelines and promote social distancing, there will be no post-race festivities. Once you’re done with your run, we ask that you exit the finish area.

• Results will be published online by the end of the next day (Thursday).
• Access to the Official Strava Club
• If you select the series, you’ll receive a Run Local shirt and commemorative medal for free!

The beautiful and flat 5K Route is a fully marked course that starts next to the baseball fields in Fletcher Park and then runs onto the path along the creek. The trail is a mix of dirt and gravel, paved and some grass. The start and finish lines are not the same, but they are in the same vicinity. CLICK HERE FOR THE GPS ROUTE

COVID-19 GUIDELINES

Here’s what we’re doing to keep our in-person events as safe as possible for everyone:

• There will be no mass gathering at the start line. The rolling start will be from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

• The start and finish lines will be separate to avoid having too many people together at once.

• All staff/volunteers will be required to wear a face covering during the event.

• Participants are encouraged to wear a face covering until the event starts and then put it back on after they are finished running/walking in the event.

• Unfortunately, with social distancing measures in place, we will not have a finish line ‘experience’ of music, hanging out and waiting on the results or an awards ceremony.

• After you are finished with your race, we ask that participants head out of the finish/venue area.

• We will provide hand sanitizer stations, and will continually wipe down frequently used surfaces.

• Increased portajohns with hand sanitizer at the park.

• Participants will not be permitted to form in groups. They must maintain 6 foot distancing while in the start/finish area, in the event hub.

DEFERRALS, TRANSFERS AND CANCELATION POLICIES

There are no deferrals and/or transfers for Pop Up 5K in the Park. If the event gets canceled, all in-person participants will be automatically transferred to the virtual option. There are no refunds for these events.

VOLUNTEER
