Activities: Running race, 5K

We are going to be celebrating the first 2 full moons of 2023 with casual and un-timed fun runs on Friday, January 6th, and Sunday, February 5th.  Register for either event and you can attend either run or even both!  

For both events, we will have a suggested 5k route in the South Hills Malls parking lot but the distance for this event is completely flexible.  Those who are doing the 5K will complete about 3 laps around the parking lot but participants can opt to do 1, 2 or 3 (or more!) laps.  

Night gear is required to participate in the run or walk (particularly the 1/6 run which will take place completely in the dark) including a light to help you see where you are going (head, waist or wrist) as well as something that flashes and will help to identify you as a runner to drivers for safety.  It would ideally be a light-up vest or xinglet, but a small inexpensive clip-on blinker attached to your clothing will work also.  

The cost of this event is just $12 and all participants will receive a custom-handmade light-up finisher's medal (scroll down for image) and a delicious black & white cookie.  

Registration for this event is online only, there are no in-store sign-ups.  Space is limited, don't wait to sign up and miss out! 

Runners & walkers of all paces are encouraged including those who are curious about nighttime running.  Both runs will take place in the South Hills Malls parking lot.  The use of headphones is strongly discouraged and we promise that you will be having so much fun, you definitely won't need them!  

We will send out pre-run emails on 1/5 & 2/4 with any other pertinent details about the event.  Please register with a valid email address that you check or you will miss this communication.  

FAQs:
Is there a minimum age to participate?  
The route is open to traffic and being that these runs will take place in the dark, these events are unsuitable for small children.  Please use your best judgment when registering minors for this event.  

Do you have a course map?
The run is around the South Hills Mall parking lot.  If you are looking for more information beyond that, this event probably isn't for you ;)

Is there a waitlist if the event sells out? 
We will not have a waitlist for this event.  We have only enough medals as open registration spots and those who register but cannot attend will still get their goodies.  

I signed up but can't attend, can I transfer my registration? 
Yes!  Since this is an un-timed fun run you can transfer your registration. If you are reselling your space, you will handle that on your end, we don't resell spaces.  

Is there a rain or snow date should there be bad weather? 
The run will happen even if it rains.  We would only postpone the event if there was more than a dusting of snow. 

Will there be any water on the course?
There won't be any water provided.  You should bring whatever you think you will need.
