You may switch events on RunSignUp.com up to 6pm the day before the race.  Please register for the 5K if your expected 10K time would be over 75 minutes; the City requires us to reopen the roads.

Team competition:

Register teams of 5 or more in the 5K to participate in the team competition.  The top five finishers in the 5K count for the team's place.  Follow the instructions for team sign-up on runsignup.com

Corporate teams: Several local companies have wellness or charitable programs that may pay your Ringing in Spring entry fee.  If you and your coworkers want to participate in Ringing in Spring, please ask your Human Resources department.  If your employer agrees, we will set-up a "Corporate Team" registration page and bill the employer. 

Prediction Walk :

Register for the prediction 5K walk to compete based on how closely your actual time matches your predicted time.  Just enter a predicted time when you register.  Please do not wear a watch on the course if you are competing for a prediction time award.  Although labeled a "walk", participants may run all or part of the course.  Please line up at the very back of the starting area.  Same start time as everyone else.
