The Route: A course map can be viewed here. The 5K will start and end on the Newburgh Waterfront trail and will be an out & back course with participants running mostly on sidewalks along the waterfront. A small portion of the course will take place on a quiet road that will be open to traffic.

Additional Information & FAQs

Is the race dog/stroller friendly? 
This course unfortunately does not enable us to accommodate strollers or leashed dogs.  

Is there a minimum age for participation?
All participants must be 21+ years of age to participate.

Are these events open to walkers? Are there any time limits?
We ask that participants try their best to complete the 5K before 7 pm. 

Do the shirts run true to size?
The shirts are a completely technical fabric that is 100% polyester and runs true to size. The Ladies' shirt is a racerback tank top and the Men's is a sleeveless tee.  To keep our costs low, we order the exact number of shirts we need and cannot accommodate size switches once the order is placed. 

I signed up but can't attend, can I transfer my registration? 
Since this is a timed race, bibs unfortunately cannot be transferred. If you are unable to participate for whatever reason, your SWAG will still be available for pickup at Fleet Feet at your convenience through 7/31/24. Since we order race supplies as registrations come in, we are unfortunately unable to order refunds or credits toward a future event.  

What if the weather is bad? 

The event will happen rain or shine and we would only not run or delay the start time if there were dangerous conditions such as thunder & lightning.  

Will there be any water on the course?  

There will be one water station near the middle of the 5K course.   

Is there a waitlist if the in-person event sells out?  

We will not have a waitlist for this event and it does generally sell out. If you are considering registering, don't wait and miss out!  

Where do the race fees go? Does this event raise money for something? 
Each event that raises money for a specific cause will be explicitly stated, including a detailed explanation of exactly how much is going where. For the large majority of our events though, the race fees are used to purchase the giveaway items and other goodies that make our events amazing. We view our races and events as a marketing arm of our in-store business which means that we aren't ever really looking to make a profit on events. This model is vastly different from most events that are profit-driven and this differentiation enables us to put all of the race fees back into the events, making them a fantastic experience for participants. We usually go a bit over the top with food, drinks, giveaways, and other extras to ensure a great time is had by everyone!
