HIKING CHALLENGE
Get fit, support the Greenway, enjoy the outdoors and, of course, get a super cool race t-shirt by taking on our hiking challenge. In its second year the hiking challenge is for those who want to be part of the race, help support the Greenway but want to take a little more time to enjoy the trail. Those who participate in our hiking challenge will be hiking our marked 5k course. They will sign up just like a race participant, the only difference being they won’t be timed or competing for first place. This is a super fun way to be part of the day’s events, so grab your family, friends and your dog and come hike with us!

KID’S SCAVENGER HUNT
From 9a-1p, kids (12 and under) will be able to register for the scavenger hunt, pick up their scavenger card, super sweet Greenway sunglasses and set off on Trekker Loop to try and complete our Blitz Scavenger hunt! Your card will be a list of numbers with blank spaces beside them. It is your challenge to go out on trekker loop and find these numbers and tell us what they are marking. All those who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a special scavenger hunt prize!

REFUND & WEATHER POLICY
Race registration is non-refundable. More than two weeks out you may transfer your race registration to another competitor or to another Greenway race of equal or lesser value. All transfers are at the discretion of the Race Director.

Our events run rain or shine unless there is severe weather. While we never want to cancel a race, in situations such as tornado warnings, thunderstorms, heavy and persistent rain etc., we will need to cancel. Should we cancel you will be notified via social media, our website, and email. Should we cancel there will be no refunds as that money has already been put toward the race.
