For everyone’s safety – NO dogs, bicycles, roller skates, or in-line skates will be allowed on the course.The use of headphones is discouraged. Strollers need to stay at the back of the race.








• Refund Policy •



If the Lakeland Runners Club needs to cancel the race, participants will be refunded their race entry fee.If you cant attend the race, please initiate a registration transfer instead of just giving your bib to someone else. Giving someone a bib registered in your name creates inaccurate race results and can prevent registered and deserving individuals from being properly recognized in their age group, and creates a risk in the case of emergency when EMS is not able to identify the person by their race number. You may transfer your registration to another runner (officially give it to someone else) under Manage Your Registration until one week before the race. 
The LRC is not responsible for identifying individuals for the exchange.








• Race History •



The first Mayfaire 5k was held on May 10, 1980. There were 64 entrants, and the winner was Mike Wachholz of Jacksonville, FL who finished in 14:00.
