Race Photos - Professional photographers from Tri Duo Sports Photography will be at the race photographing the runners. To see or purchase prior year's race photos, please access their website.

Where does the race start? The race starts at Short Pump Town Center in front of American Family Fitness.       

Who can run the Mile Race? Any runner that is 18 or younger on race day can run this event! Runners with special needs are also welcome. Parents or Guardians will be allowed to accompany or assist special needs runners. Registration now open for 2014!

School Participation Award?  You bet! The five schools with the highest participation can earn cash awards for their physical fitness programs. Read more about it on our School Participation link, and this past race school winners.

Are there rules?  Yes! Parental participation is limited. A parent or guardian may only run in the heat with their special needs child, the 8 year heats, or the 7 & Under heats. All parents/guardians must start at the back of the corral, and are only there to support their runner in times of need (emergency or moral support). Parents are not allowed to run directly next to their child. This is to be a safe, fair, and competitive event.

What do you get when you run this event?  First, you get the pleasure of having hundreds of people cheer you on while you run. You are the star of the day! Then, when you cross the finish line you will receive the coveted Short Pump Race Medal. Of course, there is also the great post-race food, the awards, and the AWESOME Short Pump Race T-Shirt you get just for registering.

How do I find out who wins?  Award ceremonies will be held on race day, and Downtown Short Pump will be providing a post-race summary on their website if you're unable to attend. Complete race results for all runners will be provided both at the race and online by Race Timing Unlimited.
