    Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the size of our event, coupled with permitting uncertainties, we have decided the safest option is to switch to virtual mode.  We want our running community to remain healthy and still celebrate the In the cut 5k! Thus we are switching all current entrants to the virtual option.

    What is a Virtual Race?

    There's no official starting line. Participants select a distance and sign up. Our race day challenge allows runners or walkers to complete the distance at any time between the specified dates and upload the results for participants to earn their finisher medal anywhere.
    Runners will be given the opportunity to download an electronic bib as well.​

    "For us, virtual racing is not a replacement, but an addition to our conventional race. Realizing the many unknowns exist today until we can get back to the course, this is an opportunity for everyone to continue to participate." - In the cut 5k

    The 'I AM ESSENTIAL' challenge can be completed as a 1 mile / 5k / 10k walk or run.

    In the cut 5k was inspired by a group of men to help move our community toward a more healthy way of living. What better way to do that than with the objective of completing a 5k. While there is a race, the event also has partnered over the years with health care groups and local personal training and fitness facilities to bring about a change. Come run with us.

    Inthecut5k on social media. 

    You may run your race at any time between Aug. 15 - Aug 29 at any place according to proper social distancing rules. If you wish, you can submit your time and be recorded as a finisher. Cutoff for race time submission will be August 30, 2020.

    The challenge is free without a tshirt or finisher medal and mailing.

    Unfortunately, as indicated in the race waiver, we cannot offer refunds--many of the costs are fixed, are pre-paid, and will be used to support our programs and partnerships. We will keep the Race Community updated.

    Thank you for your understanding and continued support of the In the Cut 5k!

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
