A metered parking lot is available across from the starting line. Access to this lot is only via Montrose Drive, as North Simonds Drive is closed for the race. Street parking is not available on Montrose Drive or North Simmons Drive, as they are portions of the race course.

Awards Ceremony

Awards will be presented to the top 3 finishers (female-indentifying, male-indentifying and non-binary-indentifying) for each of the 3 distances, and the top team on race day. Age group awards in the following categories — 14 & Under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39,40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84 and 85 & Over — will be presented as an electronic certificate emailed to the participants after race day.


Proud To Run will be scored using a chip scoring system, with each race bib having a timing chip affixed to the back. Official timing begins when the participant crosses the start mat and ends when the participant crosses the finish line. Participants must cross the mats at the start and finish lines to be timed and must wear a chip to have a result recorded.
