Walk Participant Acknowledgements

We welcome and encourage participation in the walk for those not interested in running. Please be aware that the walk event is a timed event with awards, so it is unfair for those competing if you run any portion of the event. To ensure the accuracy of the results and awards, we are implementing the following policy for the 2018 event. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any comments about this policy, please feel free to contact us.

  • Walk participants are required to walk throughout the entire 5k walk event. No running is allowed at any time. If you want to run any portion of the event, please register for the run.
  • The walk event will start after the run event. Any walker starting with the runners will be changed to the run category.
  • Walkers will be judged by their peers. If three or more people report seeing a walker run any portion of the event, they will be disqualified from the walk category. Any walker identified as running across the finish line by the timing staff, will also be disqualified from the walk.
  • Any protests must be made prior to award announcements on race day. Once awards are given, results are considered final.


The course is 5 kilometers/3.1 miles, beginning and ending at Bentley High School. It will travel over the I-69 Pedestrian Catwalk and through residential areas. The course is accurately measured.
