Reno 5000 is a premier local race production company that prides itself in family friendly events and in “spoiling” their runners with goody bags, high tech racing shirts, finisher’s medals, top category awards, free food and drink, as well as music from a DJ.
Race #3 is the final event of the 2016 Dolan Reno 5000 Running Series. Bowers Mansion Regional Park will make a fabulous backdrop for this race, and a great family friendly event to close out the summer.
The event starts with the Junior 1 mile at 7am, followed by the 5K, 10K & Half Marathon starting at 7:30am. (Packet Pickup is August 27th from 10am-1pm located at Dolan Mazda.)
The Reno 5000 race series is a great way to get the kids involved in fitness and have families set examples of an active lifestyle. The Reno 5000 racing series gives runners the opportunity to progress by distance. Though this is the last race in the series, it’s a great chance to dip your toes in a local race so that you can work at improving your time in the same distance or progressing in distance in the series next year. Some moms will start off with a 5k at Race 1, then move up and do a 10k at Race 2 and end with a half marathon at the final race.
At Dolan Reno 5000 Running Series races, families can run together or walk in their choice of distance, from the Junior 1 Mile, to 5k, 10k or half marathon. For those of you with younger children, bring out the jogging stroller! After the race, it is a community party atmosphere with free snacks, drinks and food, music and a post-race awards celebration.
