All pre-registered runners and walkers are guaranteed a long-sleeved unisex technical t-shirt in their size and while we intend to order enough shirts for all participants, there is no guarantee that Race Day registrants will receive a shirt or their desired size.

Shirts in the size requested are only guaranteed for pre-registered participants (those registered before packet pick up opens on Saturday, November 23)!

Race Day Registration

Pre-registration Packet Pickup on Race Day 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. on the right of the esplanade when you enter Sac State from J Street.

Race Start Times 10K – 8:35 a.m. 5K – 9:00 a.m. All 5K Fun Run/Walkers and those with strollers & baby joggers will follow behind the 5K runners.

Please look for the appropriate area to line up. There will be a fenced corral closest to the start line for timed runners.  All untimed participants must line up behind the timed corral.  Announcements will be made throughout the morning directing participants to the correct starting areas.
