Event Staging:

The pre-race activities (packet and t-shirt pick-up, race night registration, company gathering etc) and post-race party will all take place in the section of grass right at the main yellow house which is adjacent to the parking lot. We will have plenty of banquet tables and chairs set up for comfortable seating.

Race Course:

Starting right by the parking lot, the 5k course is one loop around scenic Oak Ridge Park. The finish line is right by the event staging area.

Party and Catering:

The post-race party will be held on the grassy area right next to the main yellow house. Free beer and pizza will be available for all. For companies that want to do something a bit more elaborate on the food and beverage side, you are welcome to cater your own company picnic. We will provide comfortable banquet table seating for your entire team. Our DJ will be playing music from event start to finish. Our photographer will be taking team and individual photos which are free for all. Awards at 8-8:15 for fastest teams and individuals.


Plenty of parking will be available in the main parking lot located right at the Oak Ridge Road facility entrance.
