1. Thursday, January 10th. Join us at Sole Sports Running Zone - 1006 E. Warner Road #104, Tempe 85284. Phone # 480-522-2475. We will be on site from 5 pm to 7 pm to register new people and distribute your goodies, which includes a goodie bag, t-shirt, and race # (bib). This is a great opportunity to beat the crowds and lines that you might experience on race day.
2. We will have the 5k packet pickup on Saturday from 8 am to 8:45 am. We will start the race on time so please arrive before 8:45 to make sure you have enough time to get your packet before the race starts. If you are doing the 1.3 mile only, you do not have to come at 8 to get your packet. We will continue packet pickup for the 1.3 mile race until 10 am.
All Distance Running will be doing our chip timing this year with their Champion Chip timing system. All chips will be distributed on race morning. We want everyone to pick up their timing chip so their time will be recorded. The chips are easy to use - just velcro the strap around your ankle. The chips will be collected at the finish line.
Please be sure to arrive at the designated packet pickup times so you are ready to go with your bib and timing chip when the race starts. The 5k starts at 9:15 am. The 1.3 mile starts at 10:30 am.

This is our 5th year hosting this event. It just gets better every year and we're excited for all that we have to offer. Some of our sponsors will be on site with some fun games so please be sure to visit their booths.
