Short review

The 2021 #BrittenStrong 5K will be Hybrid this year! 

Based on your personal level of COVID comfort – the 5th Annual 5K will feature three run/walk options > On Course 5K, DIY On Course 5K, or DIY Anywhere 5K. 

In Person 5K: Sunday – April 18th
This is close to a “normal” 5K. Runners can Start at any time between 1:00 and 4:00pm. Participants will be “called up” to Start in socially distant quantities at approximately 15 minute intervals. At the Finish – runners are to proceed directly to their vehicles. We have initiated these plans to minimize touch points, avoid the need to congregate, and to adhere to pandemic Rules & Regs. Safety First. 
Please refer to the COVID Safe Procedures and FAQ tabs above for specific Race Day Instructions. Overall and Age Group prizes will be awarded.

DIY On Course 5K: Friday – April 9th > Sunday - April 18th
The #BrittenStrong 5K course will be marked and open from Friday April 9th until Noon on Sunday 18th. Registered participants can run/walk the course at a time that is convenient for them. While not required – times can be upload for inclusion in the DIY On Course 5K results. Overall prizes will be awarded to the top 3 Overall M/F. Instructions on "How to submit your DIY times" are under the FAQ tab above.

DIY Anywhere 5K: Friday – April 9th > Sunday - April 18th
This “Do It Yourself” Event will enable you to run/walk at any time and in any location that is convenient and safe for you and your family. Run around the block, on trails, go down to the track, or even run on a treadmill. You don't even have to live in Western NC - so please invite friends and family both near and far to join the fun.
While not required – you can submit your time for inclusion in the online “Just For Fun” Results. We will collect times beginning Friday April 9th until Sunday 18th. There will be No Overall or Age Group Awards.  Instructions on "How to submit your DIY times" are found under the FAQ tab above.

Entry Fee: Adults: $30         Youth (13-17): $15      Kids (1-12): $10

New this year – we’ve opened a Store – filled with tons of “Vintage” #BrittenStrong Stuff. These exclusive items are only available during registration or via the Store tab above. Don’t miss out!

The race is being coordinated by Montreat College Exercise Science Program. This is the fifth year we are putting on the race and hope we can continue this for many years and help other families in need.
