Race registration will be limited and start times will be staggered. Additionally, participants are encouraged to wear a face covering during the registration process. Runners may remove face coverings once the race begins.

The liveBIG race was created to help people share the outdoors with their friends and family while also exercising their bodies and minds. All proceeds from the 5K and Family Adventure Run will go to the Town’s Adaptive Recreation Program. 

The Town’s Adaptive Recreation program supports members of the community, and their families, who have cognitive and physical disabilities and helps them live an active lifestyle. More information is available at CRgov.com/AdaptiveRec.
