Where is the event being held?

Starting 2015, we will started having our events at the Robertson County Fairgrounds.  Our route will still be on the Springfield Greenway, however, we will access it from the fairgrounds.


Can I run/walk with my animals?

For the safety of our runners and animal friends, we do not allow animals at any of our events.


Is there a packet pick up for the event? How does that work?

Yes, we will be holding a pre-race event the night before on Friday, September 25, 2020, 5p-8p.

 We are introducing a Community Vendor Fair.  Come check out local vendors at our first outdoor vendor fair, where they will be selling their crafts and other items. 

If you are interested in becoming a vendor please contact us for more information.  In addition, there will be several booths which will have health and safety info, kid's activities, face-painting, D.A.R.E, Fire Dept, music, entertainment, food & much more!  We will also have a silent auction going on during these times available for you.


BBQ Plates—$10 per plate (includes BBQ, bread, 2 sides, dessert, and drink)

Advanced BBQ tickets can be purchased with any foundation member or the night of the event on September 25, 2020.



What is a LIQUID COLOR RUN? How is the color administered along the course?

You will see smiling faces at the end of the course whose main goal is to douse you with colorful liquid.


Can someone pick up my packet for me?

If you print and fill out a "pick up waiver" found on the Live the "Green" Way 5K page on this website, someone else can bring your completed waiver and grab the packet to give to you.  Don't forget though, we are having an AWESOME pre-race/packet pick up event the night before!


What if I don't want to be splashed with color?

No, problem! We will have a designated "Splash-Free Zone" for you to run your course color-free.


Do I have to be registered for the race to come to the Pre-Race Event?

Absolutely not!  This event is open to EVERYONE! Come purchase a BBQ plate, enjoy the entertainment, visit the booths, and see all the other things we have to offer this year.
