We will also offer cash prizes ($200-$100-$50) for the fastest 3 men and 3 women who do their time on the Goldbar Park course and record it with their GPS tracker (must submit GPS tracking to prove finish time to be eligible for prizes). Participants must run their 5k on the actual Goldbar Park course to be eligible for cash prizes however they can run the time anytime from Thursday July 7th to Sunday July 9th.

We will chalk out the course at Goldbar Park on Saturday and Sunday morning so you can easily follow the course and we’ll put up signs on Saturday to help you navigate the Goldbar course.
