We're Going for the record!

Over the last few years we have seen many of the fastest 5k race times in the state set at the Patriot 5K. This year, thanks to the support of the Liberty Family Foundation, we are going to take it to the next level! In addition to our already huge prize purse, we will be offering a $1,000 bonus for a new state record.  Since there are no “official” records kept, we have done our research and determined the following times to be the fastest ever run in the state:

Mens- 14:15:72 set by Pat Tarpy in 2006. Womens- 16:06:18 set by Cathy O’Brien in 1996.

AND, we will still be honoring the $250 course record bonus for a potential payout of $1,750, including the $500 first place award. If a faster certified time is brought to our attention prior to the race we will determine its accuracy and notify our registered runners.

Also new for this year, we are adding a U10 age group to help recognize our younger athletes. U10, 11-14, 15-19 age group winners will receive a recognition plaque.  We are also adding a clock at the second mile mark and we will have two water stops.
