New Years Double
5K | Half Marathon | Marathon Two days of run events (New Year's Eve and New Year's Day), with beautiful race shirts and finisher medals for everyone. There's also a special perk for those who complete multiple running events over the two days – we know how runners love their bling!

All parking is at the race site. There are enough spots for all the runners in the 3 parking lots of Celebration Park. Get there early to allow enough time for parking, potty lines, and especially extra time if you still need to pick up your packet.
