Course Information
Course Map

The 5K Course is a 3.1 mile multi loop course around the Cumberland Fairgrounds. 

The 5k route will start and end on the track. The runners will start out doing one full lap of the track going counter clockwise. Runners will then be directed out of the track and will then run TWO loops around the perimeter of the fairground. After the second loop runners will be directed back to the track and will finish with another half lap around the horse track and then turn on to the grass for the Finish Line chute.

Packet Pick-Up

Program Participants and Coaches do not need to register for the 5k as their registration is included as part of their program fee and volunteer service.

5K RUNNING BUDDY REGISTRATION: Each GOTR girl can have one person register as her Running Buddy ($15 fee).

Frequently Asked Questions

I need to change my daughter's running buddy, what should I do?

Leading up to the event, please email to make a running buddy change. To make a change on race day please have the Running Buddy stop by the Runner Registration table to sign a waiver.

How long will the 5k run take?

Finishing times vary of course, but our fastest runners will complete the run in about 25 minutes. Most participants will fall between 35-45 minutes. We will have a sweeper on the course to make sure all participants have come through the finish line.

Can I run with a jogging stroller?

No. Due to the size of the event and the uneven course terrain we do not allow runners to run with strollers.

Is the 5k Timed

No. We have untimed non-competitive run where the focus is on the accomplishment of completing a 5k.


Yes! Registration is available from 8:00 - 9:15 am. The event day fee is $30 for Adult Participants and $20 for Youth Participants and Running Buddies. Walkers welcome! Cash preferred.

Unfortunately, we are unable to process any refunds. All registrations are non-refundable and nontransferable.

Can I bring my dog or pet?

For safety, all furry friends are not allowed on the course or at the event, so please leave all pets at home on 5K day! All pets will be asked to return to the pet owner's vehicle if spotted at the event.
