You can still sign up for any of our races individually if you are not interested in participating in our Race Series League!   - $30/race for the the Main Timed Race at each event (i.e. Olmsted Spirit 5k, Red2Blue Station 5k, Spooky 2-Mile Trail Race, Ugly Sweater 1-Mile Run)
***$30 registration price Opens January 1, 2023 for all four main races.  The price will increase for each race about a week prior to each event, respectively.  
All Kid Runs will be $10 starting January 1, 2023.  The price of each kids run will increase $5 about a week prior to each event, respectively.  
 
***We created a handful of special Series Pass Postcards we are handing out to certain fundraising events that have a raffle or to select overall winners in our races.  The Series Pass includes free registration to each event in our series.  However, it does not include our Race Series Crew Neck that is included in registration for those who pay.  The reason for this is their a cost to the crew neck sweaters that would cause us to lose a lot of money if we handed them out to free to the winners of these passes.  If you win one of these passes and would like to purchase a crew neck, the cost is $40.  If you have any questions about this, please email us!  
 
If you have any questions or comments, please email the race director at jeff.swislockiosraceseries.com !  We are excited to officially start this race series and look forward to welcoming back many returning runners/walkers and welcome all new participants!
