Frequently Asked Questions

What will the event schedule look like?

We will have FREE refreshments, games, music and more on the lawn throughout the event. On-site registration and bib pick-up begin at 9:00 a.m. Bike heat start: 10:00 a.m. Foot heat start: 10:30 a.m. Prize drawings and awards will be held after the last foot heat. All event activities are typically finished before noon.

Can I still participate even if can't make it on June 19th?

Absolutely! Many friends of HeartReach Center choose to bike, walk or run their 5k for Life on their own. We appreciate the support no matter where you choose. You can still register to particiapte and donate as you feel called. You can also give directly at the "GIVING" tab in the main menu.

What about children? Are there any age limits on who can participate?

We enjoy having your children participate in the 5k for Life. We do require anyone under 12 yeras old to be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Little bikers are requried to stay with their parent/guardians during the race. It is highly reccomended that you participate in the non-competitive heat if you are participating with small children. Minors are welcome to register and receive an official race time. If your child is not interested in wearing a bib or receiving an official race time, they do not need to be registered and can particiapte along with you.

The bike heat is only 30 minutes. What if I can't finish that fast?

Last year, HeartReach implemented a separate bike heat. This was done so that competitive bikers wouldn't have to dodge walkers and strollers on their way back to the finish line. Since our course is an out-and-back one, this was a real hazard. Most of our adult bikers finish their 5k in well under 20 minutes. However, if you are not sure whether or not you can complete a biked 5k in under 30 minutes, we are guessing that you won't be going for a competitive time. As such, there's no issue with you remaining out on the course. You just need to know that your bib may not register an accurate time when you do cross the finish line as your heat will already have been over.

What age divisions will you have?

Here are the age divisions from which we will be recognizing 1st - 3rd place finishers: Biker and Foot Racer Categories Child (12 and under) Youth (13-18) Adult (19-29) Adult (30-39) Adult (40-49) Adult (50-59) Adult (60 + up)
