About the Event – 21st Annual!

Join us in historic Geneva for a fun filled family night of racing. The evening schedule:

6:15 p.m — Jamie LaForce Youth Mile
6:30 p.m. — Junior Jog
6:45 p.m. — Toddler Trot, to allow children to race and have refreshments at an earlier hour.
7:05 p.m. — Summer Sunset 5K

All races are held in or around the school athletic stadium.

Proceeds from this event go towards the FRTR Youth Scholarship Fund.

Note, many have told us they would rather pay less and don’t need another shirt taking space in their closet, so race shirts are not included in the registration fee. You have the option to purchase a shirt separately on the registration site until July 8th.

COURSE MAP

The 5K course starts on Gray St. in front of school stadium and winds through neighborhood streets. All mile splits will be timed with race clocks, and a water station just past halfway. You will finish with a lap around the track in front of your friends and family as they watch from the bleachers.

Baby joggers or strollers are permitted but participants utilizing those will need to start in the back of entire field. This is for the safety of all participants. Also for safety reasons, the use of headphones or other electronic devices during the race is STRONGLY discouraged.
