A race for everyone.
Join us for the second annual Turtle 5k! Sign up early as we sold out in 2020!
Are you a self-proclaimed "turtle" or aspiring to start running? Then this race is for you!
A "turtle" could be considered a back of the packer, but they’re usually happy to be running and not worried about pace.
This is a non-judgement, motivational race to start and/or continue your running journey.
NEW for 2021: Since the race will be close to New Year's Day, we'd like to offer a NIGHT run and ring in the new year with twinkly lights!
Questions about registration:
Q. What comes with the kid's entry?
A. The kid's entry includes everything an adult entry would include, but at a lesser charge. Please only register for the kid's entry if the kid is 10 and under. The kid's entry will be listed under the person who purchased the registration (their name). If your child does not need a finisher's medal or bib, you do not need to register them.
Q. Can I transfer to a virtual race since I can no longer make on the day of the race or vice versa?
A. Sorry, no transfers.
Q. Do you offer discounts?
A. Yes, please ask any PNW Ladies Running Group Ambassadors for a discount!
Q. Can I get a refund or transfer to another race or runner?
A. Yes, you can transfer to another race or runner.
Questions about the race:
Q. Are strollers/dogs allowed?
A. Yes, but please note that the path narrows on parts of the course. Please line up in the back upon starting the race. No charge for babies in strollers (but they won't get a medal unless you purchase a paid entry).
Q. Is the course hilly?
A. Trail is fairly flat, rain or shine! The trail is open to the public- please abide by park rules.
Q. What does "cupless" mean?
A. It means we are limiting the water stations at most of our races. Please bring your own water.
Q. Is it ok to walk if I've chosen the run/walk option?
A. Yes, of course!
Q. Is this a timed course?
A. Yes, we will have extra medals for top four male and female finishers since this is a RRCA Championship 5k!
Q. What is a virtual race?
A. A Virtual 5K (or any other virtual race) is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run, use a treadmill, or participate in another race. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. Do not show up to the race on race day, unfortunately, you will not be able to get your medal/bib. All bibs/medals will be mailed AFTER the race.
Q. Where can I park?
A. Please arrive early to find street parking.
Q. Can I wear headphones?
A. We would prefer that you do not wear headphones for safety reasons.
Q. Is there gear check?
Q. Can I bring my dog?
A. Yes, but please be courteous to other runners and line up in the back. Also, don't forget to pick up after your pet.
Q. I couldn't make it to the race, can I pick up my medal or have it mailed to me?
A. Sorry, but the medals are "finisher's" medals. You must be present.
Q. Can I volunteer?
A Yes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteers get a free entry into a future race!
