Run for Food utilizes manual race timing.  Runners and walkers will wear bib numbers with pull tabs for timing and placement. Timing will be available for those registered through race day.  The top 3 finishers from each age/gender category will have times posted.  Finish line closes at 10:00 a.m. Official times cannot be guaranteed for those who finish later.


There is plenty of free parking at the College of the Siskiyous Weed Campus.  


The race starts and ends at the College of the Siskiyous football field/track in Weed.  From the track, runners and walkers go three quarters of a mile around the COS campus and enter the scenic and wooded two mile “Bear Trail.”  The 5K course concludes with a victory lap around the track.
A small section of the Bear Trail is single track and large wheel running strollers are recommended for parents with small children.  Wheelchairs are not recommended.  NO PETS ARE ALLOWED ON THE COS CAMPUS.
In the event of accumulated snow on the ground, the course may be reduced to the track only.  Please watch for e-mail and Facebook updates.


All t-shirts are offered as an optional purchase. Adult long-sleeved 50/50 cotton t-shirts and technical shirts (both long and short sleeve) will be available. Participants who wish to purchase one, and do so prior to November 1, are guaranteed a t-shirt. Some adult t-shirts will be available for purchase on Race Day, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Awards ceremony will be held at the COS football stadium after the run/walk is concluded. Awards will be given out to the top overall female & male runners, as well as the top three finishers in each age category.  Those pushing strollers will compete in their own division, regardless of age.
