We are excited to be back in action and in person for the 2021 Tortoise and Hare 5K.  The race will be capped at 200 participants.  We will be chip timing the event to provide additonal space for spreading out at the starting line.

We will also change the way we celebrate post-race this year and go to a pre-packaged option...with the goal to bring back our big food spread for 2022!

New this year - you have an option to add on a Tortoise and Hare 5K hoodie for $15!
