Where & When:
The 5 Tribe 5K – first ever!
Wolfe Park, Monroe, Connecticut
May 5th, 2019 • 8:00 am
285 Cutler's Farm Road
Registration opens January 5th, 2019 and is limited to 100 runners, up to 20 per Tribe. Register here. Don't worry – if a Tribe is full, you can join one of the others, and they're all pretty awesome :)
Experience all the best of Wolfe Park along a beautiful 5K course with forest scenery, lake views, well-marked trails and more. Race begins just beyond the upper entrance of the Hiking Trail at the East Side Entrance. Follow a wide, gently downward trail that will lead you out to gorgeous Great Hollow Lake. Cross the footbridge and wind around the lake, then back up the Hiking Trail. Take a left over the gurgling Pequonnock River, through a bit of more challenging single-track trail, and then out to a turnaround point where race volunteers will send you back the way you came. From there, you'll return to the East Side, up the final hill to the finish line. The last 200 meters may challenge you... but dig deep and listen to the cheers from your fellow Tribe runners powering you across the finish!
Remember – whether you finish first or last, you can make the difference in victory for your Tribe, so never give up! The 5 Tribe™ 5K honors Tribal victory, rewarding all the runners in the winning Tribe as well as the overall race winners. Awards will go to:
All Runners in the Winning Tribe
1st, 2nd, 3rd in the Winning Tribe (Male and Female)
1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Overall Race Finish (Male and Female)
Runners can win both a Tribal Award and an Overall Race Award. Also, in order to give special meaning to the accomplishments of winning Tribe runners, there will be no age category awards or finisher medals. When your Tribe wins, you win!
Tribal colored race shirts and wrist bands are included in the registration fee for the first 100 registered runners. Wear your Tribe gear on race day so your Tribe knows to cheer for you!
