Rails-to-Trails 5k

5K Walk / 5K Run / 5K K9 Walk / Kids Fun Run

Don’t let the name fool you! While the proceeds benefit the Rails-to-Trails project, 80% of the course is on pavement. This is a completely flat, fast course with a nice & steady half-mile downhill start! Many PR’s have been set on this course!

We offer more trophies (200+!) in more divisions (including a Masters division in both the Run and Walk, a unique Dog-Walking Division, and scores of Age Groups) than most 5k’s of this size that you will find anywhere! These unique, beautifully hand-crafted trophies, featuring an authentic railroad spike, were once mentioned in Runner’s World magazine and are highly sought-after!

We also have a HUGE smorgasbord of delicious food including several types of pizza, pepperoni rolls, deli-fresh sandwiches, homemade cookies, muffins, & candies, and Jessica’s famous pasta salad! If you leave this race hungry, it’s your own fault!

We also collect 125-150 or more door prizes valued over $2,000! With only 350-400 participants, your odds of winning a trophy or a door prize are pretty good!

The first 350 registrants receive a Tech shirt. Sizes not guaranteed: 1st come, 1st serve so register early!

Parents, stick around after the 5k for the Kids Fun Run. All kids win a trophy and the first 100 receive a goody bag jammed full of toys, coupons, and gift certificates. Cost is only 5 bucks.
