Can I walk the Hastings Harvest 5K?
YES!  You can run, walk, or skip the entire 3.1 mile loop.  Just have fun!  You can also walk/run the 1.5 mile loop (untimed).

Can I change from the 1.5 mile to the 5K?  
YES!  You can switch anytime by emailing  Our experience is that even the KINDERGARTENERS want to (& can) do the 5K. This must be done prior to the race. 

Do children have to register to run?
YES!  If a child wants to be timed in the 5K, s/he needs to register to get a number and a chip (for timing).  We will have a station for children and parents who are separated during the run to find one another.  These kids are quick!

What is the 1.5 mile loop?
The 1.5 mile loops around Baskin Rd.  It is designed for families and children who want to participate but are not ready for the 5K. Children who would like a t-shirt need to register. The 1.5 will not get an official Race Wire time. 

What is the Post Race Party?  

This is a GREAT party after the run!  We have DJ Entertainment, food trucks, and lawn games.  Thanks to donations from our sponsors, we have a variety of foods for runners to enjoy.

How can I help?
Email to let us know you want to volunteer.  There are many volunteer opportunities available and volunteers receive a FREE t-shirt! Race participants are invited to volunteer before and/or after the race.

I’ve signed up. What now?
Have Fun!  The day before the race, pick up your bib number and t-shirt.  You can also pick it up on race day starting at 9:30 am at Hastings Park.  Just go to the check-in table.

Tell your friends and family to join you, cheer you on, participate, and have fun at the post-race party.
