Important Parking Information

All entrances and exits except the Ruben Torres/Pizza Hut entrance, the JC Penney/Frontage entrance, and the Pablo Kisel/IHOP entrance will be closed and barricaded for the duration of the event. For the safety of our runners and volunteers, PLEASE DO NOT MOVE BARRICADES.


The Ruben Torres/Pizza Hut entrance, JC Penney/Frontage entrance, and the Pablo Kisel/IHOP entrance will remain open until 7:15am. Law enforcement officers will be stationed at these entrances to deny entrance or exit after 7:15am. These entrances will reopen in  a staged fashion as the last runners clear the area for cars to safely move around. We expect the order will be Frontage/802 first, Pablo Kisel/IHOP shortly after, and the last will be the Ruben Torres/Pizza Hut exit.  Please make plans to not be able to exit the event area until AFTER 8:15am.

Please help us protect our runners by NOT driving along the event course until AFTER runners have cleared the area!


Start/Finish Line

In front of Main Event and Bubba's 33 at Sunrise Mall.

Start Times

5k starts first at 7:15am in one large group.

1mi starts once the last 5k runner has rounded the corner and passed Wells Fargo. With well over 1,000 registered 1 mile runners, the 1mi run will be released in several large waves (groups) to help facilitate runner safety. Please be courteous to other runners.


5K Awards

Awards will begin as soon as the top three places for each age group have crossed the finish line.

Finisher Medals

As will all City Cruisers Events, finisher medals will ONLY be awarded to registered runners wearing their event bib number as they cross the finish line.


First Aid

We will have a First Aid tent located near the start/finish line.


Water Stations

1 mile runners will have a water station at the half mile mark.

5k runners will have access to 3 water stations along the route and will pass each one twice.
