Q. I won't be participating in the race - How do i volunteer to help at the 5k?

A. You may have noticed that the volunteer link takes you to the same page as the register link. Don't worry, it's supposed to! Simply look under registration type and select the volunteer option. It will take you through the rest of the process.


Q. Can I bring my kids with me?

A. Absolutely! The Lawndale 5K is proud to be a family-friendly event. Our route is stroller-friendly and we have kids dashes for all ages. Your child can compete at their level whether they have just started to crawl or are ready to run a 400 meter dash! Children are also welcome to walk or run the full 5K with their parent/guardian if they are able. Before and after the race, keep the kids entertained with face painting, bouncy houses, music, and more at our 5K family fest!


Q. will there be high quality pictures available?

A. Yes, we will have several photographers documenting the whole event. Photos will be available within the month following the race and will be posted to our Flickr account. View photos from past events here.


Q. Will the 5K be cancelled if the weather is bad?

A. The 5K will continue as planned, rain or shine! We do not offer refunds. In the event of cancellation due to unsafe weather, we will notify registered attendees via the email address provided at registration. 
*In 2016, our event was accompanied by a little bit of drizzle, but we still had a great turnout and a wonderful race! Check out this album to see pictures of this fun day.


Q. is any food provided on race day?

A. Included in your registration fee is a water and a small snack for the end of the race. The start and finish point of the race is conveniently located right next to the Green Tomato Café, which will be open for usual operating hours. There will also be a few other local vendors selling their wares after the race, so come prepared to buy some goodies!
