Event Q & A

Q: Is this a family friendly event?
A: Yes! Strollers, kids and families are welcome. This is NOT a closed course though, so it's important to keep an eye on your family as you participate

Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: Yes! Just be sure to scoop the poop.

Q: What do I do with my kiddos?
A: The kid's dash is a VERY short mini-dash that will take place before the bigger events start. Kids will receive a medal and a snack, which will hopefully keep them happy as they do the 5K walk/run or paddle with you. The park also has a great play area if you are able to bring a babysitter to supervise your kiddos while you get your dash and/or paddle on! Just remember that the Dash is NOT a closed course and there were be a few cars passing by along the way.

Q: What is the day going to be like?
A: When you arrive you will sign-in or register for your event. At this time you will sign your event waiver. After that, you'll hangout while you wait for your event to start. Those who are participating in the paddle will take their vessel to the staging area AFTER sign-in/registration. We will announce when and where you should be throughout the event.

Q: Where to I put my paddle board, kayak or canoe for the paddle event?
A: We will have a staging area for paddle participants. You will start from the shore of the park. You are responsible for lifting and moving your vessel from your vehicle to the staging location in the park.

Q: Will I get a t-shirt?
A: Everyone who registers before April 13th will receive a cotton event t-shirt. You can pay an extra $10 at registration to get a dri-fit event shirt instead of a cotton shirt. Later registration participants can pick-up their t-shirt after they finish their event.

Q: When will I sign my liability release waiver?
A: You will sign the waiver when you pick-up your registration packet the day of the race.
