We will have 6 volunteers to guide you. There is quite a bit of convenient side street parking, but Marshall Road will be closed to through traffic (Between Stroop and David) starting at 8:00 am, so plan your approach if side street parking is your choice.
It takes time to get 1100 runners parked, so we recommend early arrival for a stress reduction program.

How great that winter has finally broken in favor of early spring (and running) weather.
The course map has been improved to show the course with each turn marked, mile markers called out, and markers for the start, water stop, and finish. Check it out here.
Within a couple of days each registered runner for which we have a valid e-mail address will receive an update on registration, late registration, early packet pickup, and race day happenings. We will post the same information here and on Facebook, so stay tuned.
Thursday and Friday before the race, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., at Up and Running, 6123 Far Hills Ave Dayton, OH 45459 937-432-9210
We are proud to welcome a generous new corporate sponsor
Hi there – we are getting ready to order the tech shirts, and we thought you might like to see this year’s design. We are excited to head into unexplored territory with black shirts this year – let us know what you think.
Up & Running, a Harrigan’s primary sponsor, is back again for 2014, donating a pair of running shoes for one lucky male & one lucky female runner. The winners will be drawn at random from runners that participate on March 22nd.
Each year, the team from the Air Force Marathon has been at Harrigan’s to enable sign-ups, and they are back again for 2014.
If you are interested, don’t wait until then, but if you have questions they will be at the run to help you out.
We just surpassed the 150 registrations that will get tech shirts, but we will have plenty of super-duper Harrigan’s cotton shirts for everyone else.
Some of you noticed that we posted information after last year’s race that the course would be updated for 2014.
Here is the revised course – more accurate than ever and we now start on Marshall near the front of Harrigan’s itself instead of from around the corner on Chateau.
As this is being written, next Monday’s noon forecast is -8 degrees. Maybe the hard winter is helping us warm up to the idea of a beautiful spring run.
With almost three months to go to Spring and the Harrigan’s 5k, we already have 126 runners registered for the 2014 Harrigan’s 5k. That means tech shirts are going to the next 24 runners/walkers who register.
On behalf of our charities, thanks for your support, and Happy New Year.
