How to wear your Bib-Tag Timing Chip:
5K participants (that paid the $3.50 extra) will be Chip Timed to process race results. [Click Here] to see details on how to wear your Bib-Tag Timing Chip. Please wear your Bib Number on the FRONT of your shirt during the race. [Example] Remember to bring your Bib Number Race day. No Bib Number means no recorded time. The timing chip is located on the back side of your Bib Number.

Start Line Corrals:
In an effort to make everyone’s race day experience smoother and safer, Rumpshaker 5K has implemented a tiered corral system. We ask runners to gauge their race pace and utilize one of the specially designated areas at the start line. This will allow you to get on your way faster, and will allow participants with children or other family members to feel safer as well. Everyone who has paid the extra $3.50 to be chip timed will receive a timing chip, so the new arrangements will not affect the timing of the race. Your time will not start until you cross the starting mat.

The following corrals will be available based on your finish time:
•RUN 24 minutes or less
•RUN 25-29 minutes
•RUN 30 minutes or greater
•WALK ONLY
Look for signs with the above finish times on race morning to ensure you are in the appropriate corral.

NOTE: If you are participating with a stroller and/or children, we ask that you keep your children with you at all times, and that you start from the back of the “RUN 30 minute or greater” or “WALK ONLY” corrals. This will allow your family members, and our other participants, a safer race experience.

Race Day Photos:
Race Day Photography will be provided for individuals and teams from 7:00 am – 7:50 am and again from 8:45 am – 9:45 am. Photos will be available for purchase 3 – 5 days after the race. Get your Team T-shirts Ready!!

5K Awards:
Top 3 Overall Awards Male/Female based on Gun Time
0-9 thru 75+ in 5 Year Age Group Awards based on Chip Time
NOTE: If you would like to be eligible for Awards, the purchase of a Timing Chip is required ($3.50/participant).

Team Awards:
Team with Most Registered Participants (as of 02/28/15)
Team with Most “Overall” Funds Raised (as of 8:00am 02/28/15)
