Activities: Running race, 5K (3.1 Miles)

The Fall Frenzy 5K Three Race Series returns for 2021! This exciting race series will give participants the flexibility to sign up for one race or all three! Each race will have its own race shirt and take place in a different location. Participants who sign up for the race series will receive an additional commemorative race shirt acknowledging their accomplishment.

Our first race, the Fall Frolic will take participants to the Howard Colman Hall Creek Preserve which features a variety of trails and beautiful views. The meander of Hall Creek and flowage of spring water found on the property have carved out bluffs and exposed dolomite cliffs. Rolling, restored prairie gives way to an open canopy of majestic oaks gathered among the creekside hills. 

Our second race, the Halloween on the Prairie 5K captures the essence of fall at the Jarret Prairie Center. Runners will breathe in the changing colors of the prairie while taking in fall views from the rolling hills. 

Our third and final race in the series, the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot 5K, presented by Byron Bank is all about fun! This race is an approximate 5K and runners will guess their time. Pies will be awarded to the top finishers who are closest to guessing their finish time. The "Best Dressed" Golden Turkey award will be back and the winner(s) will have a chance to take home a special prize! 

Chip timing will be provided by Tri-3 Sports Timing.

Plaques will be awarded to the overall male and female finishers. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 male and female finishers in each age division. Age divisions are as follow: 0-14, 15-18, 19-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74, 75 & older.
