We are going to have to CANCEL Riverside 5000 this year. There are just too many unknowns at this point. It’s a bummer for us too. Good luck with your running and hopefully we’ll be able to get racing back on track in the coming months. We’re planning to be back at it in 2021.
The Riverside 5000 is a fun, flat, and fast 5km race. This event is unique in that we have multiple races for runners of different ages/abilities.
7:30am Elite Race – This race is run on a three loop course and has the largest guaranteed prize purse of any 5k in Eastern Oklahoma. Men should be able to run under 17 minutes and women should be able to run under 20 minutes to be in this race. Adult entry is $25, $30 on Race Day and includes the event t-shirt. Kids 18 & under see the Kid’s Race info.
8:00am Open Race Age 19 & older – This race is for is for adult runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. It is run on a two loop course. Prizes will be given out to runners who finish in the top three in standard USATF age groups as well as clydesdale/filly categories. NO KIDS. Entry is $25 and includes the event t-shirt, $30 Race Day.
8:45am Open Race Age 18 & Under Race – This race is for kids 18 & under and is run on the same two loop course as the Open Race. Entry is free with a non-perishable food donation for the Jenks Community Food Bank IF you pre-register at Tulsa Runner or through your cross country coach. Race day registration will be $10. The race tshirt is not included, but you can buy one separately for $15. We’re trying to encourage the kids to pre-register to minimize race day congestion. If an Adult wants to run in the 18 & Under race to run with their kid we’re fine with that, but adults will need to pay $25 entry fee and will receive a shirt. Adults in the 18 & Under race will not be eligible for any age group awards.
Coaches will need to register their teams on Endouro USA. If you just have a couple kids to register you can do that at the store. Team registration is due by 11pm Wednesday August 7th.
Packet Pick-up is at Tulsa Runner starting Wednesday August 7. Race day packet pick-up and registration will be on the northwest corner of 96th and Riverside beginning at 7:00 AM.
Tshirts will be available for sale for $15.
