Runners and walkers do follow the same certified 5K course. There is also a one-mile loop option for walkers who would prefer not to walk the full 5K.

Of course! Walk-in registration will be available beginning at 9 am when packet pickup officially opens.
CAN I BRING MY KIDS?
We'd love for you to bring your kids! Jim's Jog is a family event, and there is no minimum or maximum age requirement. We also allow runners to race with strollers. All children over the age of 4 must be registered individually for the event; younger children who will be in strollers can participate for free.
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
You are welcome to bring your dog; however, all dogs must stay on the leash at all times and it is your responsibility to clean up after your dog in the park.
CAN I BRING MY RARE BRAZILIAN PYTHON?
Unfortunately, at this time we cannot welcome exotic and dangerous animals to Jim's Jog.
what should i bring with me?
Nothing but yourself and your running shoes! Food and drink will be available to you throughout the event. If you'd like, feel free to wear a touch of orange, the MJFF color.
what happens if it's raining?
Our team is hardy and so are our racers! In the event of inclement weather, the race will go on, unless severe weather alerts make it too dangerous for our runners to be out on the course. We will communicate with you via phone if this ends up being the case and the event will be rescheduled.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AVAILABLE FOR FREE OR FOR PURCHASE?
There will be plenty of free snacks and breakfast foods, so come hungry!
WILL THERE BE PRIZES?
There will be plenty of prizes! Medals will be awarded to top overall finishers and top finishers in each age/gender category. In addition, there will be a raffle for all sorts of great prizes donated by local businesses.
how can i make an additional donation?
Please visit our Team Fox homepage to donate directly to Jim's Jog.
how much of my registration fee goes directly to team fox and mjff?
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we are fortunate to have been able to contribute 100% of all registration fees directly to Team Fox during our past three events. We anticipate doing the same during our 2017 event.
