Event Details:

Join us on Saturday, January 12, 2019.  This timed 5K offers you the choice to run, walk, or stroll through beautiful Al Lopez Park.  


Our race is professionally timed and the Overall Top Male and Female finishers will receive prizes.  Top Male and Top Female finishers in each age category will also be acknowledged.  Every finisher registered before December 14, 2019 will receive a race shirt and finisher’s medal.  Stay for our after-party featuring adult beverage vouchers provided by Bootleggers Brewing Company, ice cream, awards, and more! 


The course is paved and flat, providing beautiful scenery as you complete two loops that make the full 5K.  Water stations will be provided along the course.  Al Lopez Park’s 5K path includes two loops, an outer loop followed by the inner loop, as shown below.


You have options to run or walk independently or with a stroller.  We ask that those with a stroller start in the back of the start corral to avoid accidentally tripping other participants.


Discounted registration is available for Veterans who show their Military ID or Drivers License with a “V” symbol at packet pickup with Promo Code VET20. Purple Heart recipients will be able to participate free with registration to WWIA by using Promo Code PHFREE. Visit https://wwiaf.org/heroapplication/ and complete all three steps at the top of the page.


This event is a fundraiser and proceeds from the event will support WWIA and Purple Heart recipients.
