Seeding Runners

Q: What does it mean to "seed runners"?
A: To position fast runners (i.e. finish under 25 minutes) in a reserved, corralled area at the very front of start line. Captains may "seed" 10% of their participants (i.e. 45 participants = 5 seeded runners), up to a maximum of 25 runners.

Q: How are runners seeded?
A: When the Team Captain picks up the team's Race Pack (t-shirts, race #'s, etc.) at Track Shack, race staff will offer wrist bands to be given to the seeded runners on their team. Only those runners who wear the wristband will be allowed in the "seeded corral" at the start line which is indicated by signage, barriers and volunteers. Seeded runners receive a red wrist band.


Virtual 5k

Q: What does it mean to run or walk virtually?
A: Running “virtual” means you and your team can run or walk the 5k from anywhere and receive a great team-building experience, and amenities. Running “virtual” also means you can help our Central Florida charities during these difficult times.
