Prior to the start of our 10K and 5K, we will host a fun spectator-friendly event in which we will feature some of the top high school boy and girls runners from the Greater Reno-Tahoe Region to race on a .25 mile two-loop course starting from and finish at the Reno Arch in the heart of Downtown Reno. However, to kick off the event we will additional host the Inaugural First Responders Challenge, featuring the fastest runners from each of our local agencies. We encourage all of our 10K and 5K runners and spectators to arrive early so you can cheer everyone on.


Our 5K event is the prefect event for both runners and walkers to enjoy. This one-loop course take you from the Reno-Arch in the hear of Downtown Reno south on Virginia Street, over the Truckee Rive and through the center of Midtown Reno. Then after two quick left turns from E. Pueblo St and onto Holcomb Ave, participants will merge onto Center Street/University Way heading north to 5th Street. From there they will make another two quick left turns back onto Virginia Street heading back south past The Row of resort casinos finishing back at the Reno-Arch.


For those wanting to go longer than 3.1 miles this year, we are offering a special 10K run-only option. Our 10K runners will have the unique opportunity to run the 5K course through Downtown and Midtown Reno twice.

Due to traffic management agreements with the City of Reno, we are encouraging our walkers to only participate in the 5K Run/Walk so that we can reopen traffic in Midtown by late morning.
