In 2022, there are three options to enjoy the event:

  • a live, in-person event with social distancing for a COVID-safe run with waves of 25 runners every 15 minutes;
  • a virtual event on the official course at your convenience anytime between February 18 and February 26; and
  • a virtual, make-your-own course anytime between February 18 and February 26.

Participants in the virtual event will receive directions on how to submit virtual times after January 31st.

Participants in the in-person and virtual events (when data is submitted via RunJoy, etc.) are eligible for the top male and female finisher awards in both the 5K and 10K events who will receive a gift certificate for a pair of running shoes from Fleet Feet - Chico. Prizes will not be awarded by age divisions this year.

Participants may choose from long-sleeved technical or short-sleeved poly-cotton blend shirts. Registration is still just $40 (in-person and virtual) through race day, although be sure to register early as only 400 shirts in various sizes and styles have been ordered.
