The race you know and love is back for our 24th year at the SAME PRICES AS LAST YEAR! The 5K will start first and then the 10M will start 45 minutes later giving you the option to run BOTH, to form the 13.1 BadAss Half Marathon Combo! In the OFTM BadAss Combo, participants are scored with a cumulative time of both the 5K and 10M races.
Not sure if you want to run both? Registration accepted after 5K finishes and if there are 10M entries still available on race day but NOTE, it’s .5m to start of 10M race so plan transition accordingly! We say this because sometimes even if the race fills up, runners may want to drop down to the 5K or visa versa and spots become available (there is a $40 fee to bump up to 10M). We try not to encourage this as it makes it difficult to plan for medals, awards, etc, but hey, we are runners, too… we get it!
