Race Registration Tables
|Stroller Division (optional)||The Duck Waddle is a family event, so make your kiddos part of the action! Mother runners (OK, dads, too), air up the tires on the baby joggers, and see if you can outpace one another for bragging rights at PTA this year. Safety Note: We’ll have instructions on race day regarding how to line up and navigate the course.|
|Dog Division (optional)||Many of us run with our pooches, so why not invite them to race with us? If you have a speedy pup who would do well in a busy race environment, sign yourselves up! Safety Note: Limit one dog per participant. All dogs must be on a non-retractable leash that is less than six feet in length. We’ll have instructions on race day regarding how to line up and navigate the course.|
The 5K course begins and ends in Finley River park. Runners will leave the park through the south entrance, running north on Riverside Road to Greenbridge Road. When they reach the approximate midway point, runners will turn around and head back to the park. Runners will enter the north park entrance, run past the soccer fields, and finish on Finley River Parkway.
