Race Rules
For the safety of all participants, rollerblades and pets are not allowed at the event. Thank you for your cooperation. We urge participants with baby strollers/joggers to start in the back of the 5k walk or 1 mile fitness walk event.  All participants must be registered and wearing a race bib.

The Course
There will be one water station on the 5k course and one at the finish line.  Enjoy the variety of entertainment along the course.  Follow instructions from course marshals and smile for the cameras.

The Finish Line
The finish line is located on the Virginia St Bridge.  Finish times are recorded for participants in the timed 5K timed run who finish in less than 36 minutes.  There will be a display clock at the finish line for all others to see their times.

Awards and Results for the 5K Timed Run
Awards will be available for the 5K timed run and presented to the top three finishers in these categories: survivors, women and men. Results will be posted within 24 hours at www.komennevada.org.  

Race Day Activities
Visit our race Expo featuring race sponsors with great giveaways and informational takeaways.  We invite all race participants to join us for our Survivor Ceremony which will begin at 8:30 am.  When you cross the finish line, enjoy free post-race refreshments.  Post photos and messages on the Dedication Wall near the Expo.  Plan to show your support for the fight against breast cancer by purchasing fabulous Komen merchandise at the Shop for the Cure.  Visa, MasterCard, checks or cash will be accepted.

Suzy's Garden is an opportunity to honor someone for their efforts in the fight against breast cancer. Purchase a pink tulip ($10), add a message, and "plant" in Suzy's Garden on Race day.
