Starting Line Up: For the safety of all participants, we ask that those who will be running the course line-up towards the front of the starting line.

Packet Pick-Up: will be only on race day Saturday, April 20th from 7:00am - 8:00 am.


Can I register at the race? 
Yes, you can register at the race tent from 7 am to 8 am.
What's the sticker on the back of my bib? This is your timing chip. DON’T REMOVE IT! Please note, your race time starts when you cross the mat, not when the gun goes off.

Can I pick up someone else’s number & shirt? 
Yes, but please make sure they know you are picking up for them!  
When is the last day to register that guarantees I'll get a shirt? April 5th is the last day to register where we still guarantee you'll receive a shirt.

Can I take a different shirt size than what I ordered? 
You will be given the size you ordered when you pick up your packet.

Where do I park? 
Participants will be encouraged to park along Preble Dr.

What if I am fast but want to run with my family or a group of friends? 
We advise you to position yourself towards the back of the starting line with slower paced participants

The bib with your race number on it has your timing chip attached to the back. It also contains important information for safety and identification. Please pin this on the front of your outermost garment. It will record the time as you cross the mats at the start, midpoint, and finish of the race. Your chip/bib MUST be returned at the end of the race.

All Runners and walkers must start the race by 8:45 am due to the railroad crossing.

Race Guidelines
All participants sign a waiver stating, “I understand that bicycles, skateboards,  roller skates or blades, or animals are not allowed in the race and I will abide by this guideline. Use of headsets is strongly discouraged.” Please adhere to these guidelines and follow all instructions from race officials.

Walking Strollers
As a family event, the Hip Hop 5K will allow participants to walk with strollers as long as you place yourself at the back of the starting line.
