Race Day Check-In
Check-in will take place at Corporate Tent 1 located on the northeast end of the Fairgrounds, directly north of the race track (near gate 5). This is when you will pick up your race shirt and race number bib. Check-in will begin at 10:00 am and will end at 12:00 pm SHARP. All registered runners will be bused to the starting line at Rogers Park by Cardinal Buses. Those without the current issued Parade 5,000 race number will NOT be allowed to use the transportation provided, nor run in the race.
The race itself begins approximately at 1:20 pm or whenever the race route can be completely cleared. Two water stations are available during the route, as well as ice towels at the finish line supplied by Wellpath.
Age groups are as follow: (male & female separate) under 12, 13-15, 16-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, over 60.
Race shirts are given to the first 200 entrants. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each age group. The top male and female winner will each receive $100 towards tennis shoes donated by Woldruff's Footwear in Goshen.
There will not be a post-race award ceremony for the 2023 race. The medals and prizes will be taken to the Fair Office one hour after the race for the winners to pick up from there.
Results will be available at www.timetorun.net, Wattsmytime.com, and www.runsignup.com.
