DAY-OF EVENT DETAILS
7 - 8:30 AM
Prior to 8:30, you can pick up breakfast and packets if you didn't retrieve them on Saturday.
At 8:30, all participants are asked to move to the STARTLINE. 5K runners should position themselves according to their pace times. Signs will be alongside the startline. Walkers should position themselves according to the walker signage. Any walkers with strollers please position yourselves towards the back of the walkers to avoid any congestion. It is necessary to separate the runners from the walkers so we get the runners and walkers on the correct course. Non participants and spectators should keep to the side of the starting areas.
*** NO DOGS ALLOWED***
Runners should position themselves at the STARTLINE according to their mile marker pace times which will be displayed on the sides of the starting area. All runners must wear their bib numbers on the front. Race Marshals will use these bibs to direct you on the right path, and the bibs also have the timing chip attached to them. Do not remove the foam adhesive at any time.
When finishing the race, please don't stop in the Finishers Chute. Times will be available near the tented event area or posted near the football field and then available online the week following the race.
QR codes will be provided for immediate race times.
The 5K Walk'n Talk is for walkers only and is not a timed event.
Participants should gather at the STARTLINE and look for the walker signage in order to line up apart from the runner. This is very important so the walkers get directed to the right course. All walkers should wear their bibs on the front.
When finishing it is very important that walkers do not go through the runner finishing chutes as it will throw off the runners timing. Walkers will have a seperate finish line.
1/4 MILE RUN & KIDLET'S RACE
For children under age 10, this run will be one time around the track and is not a timed event. Ribbons will be awarded to all entrants. The kidlet race is for all kids signed up for the kidlet race, they should have bib #1 and wear them on their shirts. Kidlets are also encouraged to participate in the 5K walk with their parents or families in addition to the kidlet race.
*Start times are subject to change slightly to accomodate the vibe of the crowd and natural progression of the day's previous events.
RACE DAY GUIDELINES
Here are a few tips and guidelines that we ask all participants to review and keep in mind to ensure our event is safe, efficient, fair and FUN!
The front of the Runners START line is for the fastest runners; those usually expecting to do under-6 minute miles. Slower runners should find a place farther back in the runners pack at the start, before the start of the race. There will be numeric signs on tall PVC poles along the side of the starting area with 6, 8, and 10 indicating target minutes per mile to help place runners before the start. Please, no last second pictures in the front of the Start line. There is a photo area with a Moms on the Run banners for group pictures near the field.
Those children under 10-years old registered for the Kidlets event and issued a bib number “1” should not participate in the 5k Run events. They may participate in the 5K Walk and should start with the Walker Corral sign located at the startline. All participants who wish to participate in the 5K run, including those under 10, must register as a runner and pay the full entrance price. All participants who wish to participate in the 5K walk, of all ages should register and should pay the appropriate entrance price for any running or walking event.
Moms on the Run is a charitable event for the benefit of women of Northern Nevada while they are in treatment for various cancers. We are very unique in that the funds we raise go DIRECTLY toward assisting these women and their every day needs. Plus, all funds raised here, stay here - we are proud to stay 100% local. We are dependent upon our volunteers, commercial contributors and the awareness of our participants of our mission to raise money for those that need it. We ask that attendees and participants honor our efforts by sharing in the festivities, respectful of our desire that everyone enjoy themselves but exercise personal restraint in what is offered freely. No one should participate in any event without paying. Of course, Moms on the Run is open to the public and visitors and family are encouraged to cheer for family and friends that participate.
