PRC Winter 5K Series

NEVER LET WINTER WIN!

Keep those wheels turning and the fire burning all winter long when you join in our seasonal 5K series. This low-key, high-yield trio of races gives you the chance to test your training, improve your times, and compete with yourself. Race in December and then focus on your 5K improvement. Train hard, do some speed work, try some hill repeats, or add some miles to your weekly load. Then come back in January and do it again. Your progress might surprise you! Race. Train. Repeat! Whether you are training for a PR or just looking for a great avenue to set some goals for 2023, The Winter 5K Race Series is the ideal platform.

ALL RACERS MUST CHECK IN!: Keep your bib number for use at all three events. You must check in once you get to the race even if you are using your bib number from one or both of the other 5K’s.  If you have misplaced your original bib or if it is damaged (washed or folded on the timing tag), please come to the registration tent before the race for a new one.
 
***Please note: Even though we are using the same bib numbers for all three races, we still need you to check in race day morning***

PARKING: Follow directions from our parking team. Parking is available in and around the PRC center. Please park FIRST and then come to  RACE HQ if you have any questions.

GEAR CHECK: YES! The winter weather forecast is looking really favorable for some great 5Ks but it may still be chilly. Wear warm clothes, bring a bag, and check them at the Gear Check Tent before the race starts.

RESULTS: all races will be chip timed. If you want to receive your results via text, make sure that your registration information contains a mobile phone number. You may add your phone number through your Active.com login. Live results will post throughout the event.

AWARDS: 9:50am

Age Group Winners: Age Groups start with 14 & Under and are in 5 year increments (15-19, 20-24, etc). First place in each age group wins a shiny blue ribbon and a $10 PRC Gift Card. 2nd and 3rd place also receive beautiful ribbons. Age group awards will be available to pick up at the awards table and we will do an abbreviated ceremony to announce the top finishers.

POST RACE: stay tuned for post-race details including goodies and raffle prizes! 

WINTER RACE #1 (Winter Gave Its Best Shot)

Winter gave us its best shot and we still managed to prevail. A little cold? No biggie. A little rain? Fear not. A little Wind Advisory? How about all three? Through the blinding elements, we witnessed enthusiasm, joy, a bunch of super soaked smiles (and a few soaked laptops), and some seriously happy feet and we are ready for more! Race #1 is in the books. Results are posted. 

Age Group Winners: First place in each age group wins a shiny blue ribbon and a $10 PRC Gift Card. 2nd and 3rd place also receive beautiful ribbons. If you did not get your award today, let us know and we will hold it for you at one of the PRC shops or mail it directly to you. See you all next month.

WINTER RACE #2 : Winter Apologizes!

After flexing its muscles in December, Winter took a little break for us in January. The temps were still brisk, but wind and rain were on vacation for the Janaury edition of the series. Race #2 is in the books. How many of you PR’d? Now it’s time to train hard, pound the pavement, tweak the weeks, and come back in February for the season finale. See you next month.

Age Group Winners: First place in each age group wins a shiny blue ribbon and a $10 PRC Gift Card. 2nd and 3rd place also receive beautiful ribbons. If you did not get your award for January, let us know and we will hold it for you at one of the PRC shops or mail it directly to you.

WINTER RACE #3: Winter Takes A Vacation!

For Race #3, Winter headed south (we guess) yielding to blue skies, warm temps, and a whole lotta’ smiles. Please let us know if you have a results inquiry. Congratulations to all 5K racers!

Age Group Winners: First place in each age group wins a shiny blue ribbon and a $10 PRC Gift Card. 2nd and 3rd place also receive beautiful ribbons. If you did not get your award for January, let us know and we will hold it for you at one of the PRC shops or mail it directly to you.
