Race Information and Parking

Whisper Valley 5K & 10K Course MapThe 5K and 10K starts and ends on Petrichor Boulevard. The 10K will complete two laps of the course, which takes runners through all four phases of Whisper Valley.

Runners, walkers, strollers and dogs are all welcome! The race is a timed event and will begin promptly at 8 a.m. with 5K runners starting first. Our run timing company, RaceTimerz, utilizes reusable, RFID shoe tags. The tags do not begin tracking until runners cross the starting line, so the top 3 overall male and female finishers will be accurately timed.
