As you know, we are all facing unprecedented times. Each of us is impacted by what is happening in our community and inside our homes. These past few months we have all been faced with many ups and downs. 

To ensure the safety of those participating in the event, it will look a lot different this year.

  • Chip Timing: To ensure participants’ social distance on Saturday, August 22, there will not be chip timing. Participants will have all day on Saturday, August 22, to complete the course and submit their time for a chance to win their age group.
  • Course Maps: Maps for the 5K and kids fun runs are posted on the Run Sign Up page by visiting www.cityofjohnston.com/Mayors5KRun.
  • Packets: There will not be a packet pick-up available on Saturday, August 22. We encourage participants to pick up their packets on Friday, August 21 at Heartland Soles from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. If you are unable to pick them up on Friday, please email parks@cityofjohnston.com to schedule a time to pick up your packet.
  • Athlete Swag: T-shirts will be the only swag available this year. Bibs and medals will not be distributed. If you choose to run the course on race morning, please consider wearing your t-shirt for a selfie opportunity at the end.
  • Food: There will not be any food available after the run. We encourage runners and walkers to eat a well-balanced meal before venturing out for this virtual event.
  • Photos: Our Mayor will miss rallying with everyone at the start line and cheering you on as you cross the finish line. Please take a selfie and tag us using #MayorsRunforTrails2020.
