TIMED RUNNER INSTRUCTIONS
On Race Day - we'd made it easy for you to RACE against the other timed registrants using the FREE Strava App! The app can also help you find a popular local route for your 5K or you can chart your own course.
On Race morning, just lace up your running shoes, pull on your Hero cape, start the event through the app, and run your Race. Strava will automatically track your time and distance, map your route, and add your accomplishment to the Virtual Race leaderboard for all to see!
