Food Truck Rally & Sunset 5K

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Run • Walk • Taste • Rock


What do you see when you look at the picture above?

  1. People from over 80 towns and 6 states enjoying curbside cuisine
  2. Race participants scoping out the competition
  3. A couple on their first date enjoying gelato under a shady tree
  4. All of the above (This is the correct answer, by the way.)

HURRY UP and check out the "All the Cool Kids Are Doing It" 5K registration perk before it's too late! (This applies to people who have registered and those who are just about to.)

*THAT'S NOT ENOUGH? Either RSVP to the Food Truck Rally or register for the 5K before Sunday, August 7 and be entered into a drawing to receive $50 in Food Truck Rally vouchers! (Of course there are rules for this! Scroll down to see them.)

NOTE TO SELF: 5K registration is not required to patronize the food trucks as long as you promise to do your crunches (and we don't mean the French fries from Toasty Cheese).

New this year:

  • FREE outdoor concert by Tributosaurus as David Bowie (If you don't know who they are, then this FREE concert is the perfect introduction because it's FREE! Did we mention it's free?)
  • A bazillion food trucks
  • Beer and wine service during Tributosaurus!
  • Touch-A-Truck(and lots of other free kids activities)
  • Onsite ATMs (Money doesn't grow on trees; it comes out of machines.)
  • 5 p.m. race start

The exact same this year:

  • Excellent parking
  • Nearby, indoor, and really clean restrooms
  • Free kids activities
  • CARA and USATF certified 5K Run/Walk (same course as 2015)
  • $200 Visa gift card awarded to Top Overall male and female runners, and "Middle of the Pack" winner
  • $50 Whole Foods gift cards to all winning team members
  • iPad door prize for race participants
  • 100-Yard Youth Dash

All proceeds from this event will benefit the COD Fuel Pantry, a sustenance resource on campus for COD students scheduled to open during the Fall 2016 semester.
