    IT'S OFFICIAL!  The 2021 Cream City 5K will be happening in-person on Saturday, June 5 at Greenfield Park!  In order to comply with Milwaukee County Parks COVID regulations and hold the in-person event we have made a few changes to the event format.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  If you have any questions about the event format, please email info@creamcity5k.org.
    • We will use a rolling start for the 5K run/walk and 3K walk.  Since the event is chip timed only your time on the course will be recorded.  3K Walkers will be timed this year!
    • The 5K start window will be between 9:30am and 10:00am.  The 3K walk start window will be between 10:00am and 10:30am. 
    • The start area will be fenced off and access to the start area will be limited to allow spacing between participants.
    • Hand sanitizer will be available at the start/finish area.
    • Participants will be emailed COVID screening questionnaire before the event. If you have any COVID symptoms, please do not attend the event.
    • We are encouraging participants to wear face coverings when in close proximity with others.  We as a race committee will be wearing face coverings, even though we are all fully vaccinated.  While the CDC has removed a lot of restrictions, as have many businesses, but there will be immune-compromised (transplant) attendees at the Cream City 5K. We want to make sure we are being respectful of them and their wishes. If you don't wish to wear a face covering we will respect your decision, but please be courteous of those around you.
    • Post-run/walk food and water will be pre-bagged and will be provided to participants as they pass through the finish area.
    • Kellan's Fun Run for Kids will have a wave start.  Details will be emailed to participants' parents.
