What is Sunburst 5?

Join us this fall as we expand Sunburst Races into Elkhart! Our brand new 5 mile road race will offer long sleeve technical shirts, fall themed finisher awards, and (optimistically thinking) cool, crisp, runner-friendly temps. The race, beginning at 8:00am on Sunday, October 6, 2019, will start and finish at the brand new Elkhart Health & Aquatics. Runners will make their way north of the St. Joseph River via the Johnson St. bridge and run east along both Beardsley Ave. and Greenleaf Blvd. before turning around and making their way back towards downtown.

After finishing, runners may treat themselves to a festive mug of apple cider and post-race snacks. An awards ceremony will take place at 9:30am. Prizes will be awarded to the top three overall finishers in the Open and Master's Divisions of both male and female. Top three age group winners in each category will also receive an award.

When is Packet Pickup?

Packet Pickup will take place on Friday, October 4th and Saturday, October 5th from 12:00pm-4:00pm at Elkhart Health & Aquatics. Runners should enter on the east side or "Commons" area.

When is the Shirt Deadline?

To be guaranteed a shirt, runners need to be registered by 11:59pm on Friday, September 27, 2019.

Do you need Volunteers?

As with all events, we could use some extra assistance. Volunteer opportunities are available in the following areas: start/finish line, water stops, and course marshals. If you have any questions regarding volunteer opportunities, please Email Travis.
