Crawlin’ Crab 5k – 8:00a October 4, 2014

This fun 5k starts and finishes in front of the Hampton Roads Convention Center.  All 5k “crawlers” are invited to the post-race party with live music, food and plenty of beer (21+).

It’s a run for the whole family!  All participants will receive a technical fabric race shirt, and all finishers will receive a unique medal.  Top three finishers for overall, masters, and each age group will get awards.  Sign everyone up for this one!

**The Crawlin’ Crab 5k is open to participants of all ages.  Parents or guardians are encouraged to run with their minor children but must be registered for the race.  Responsible adult family members must be present at the finish to receive their minor children as there will be no additional security beyond the secured finisher’s area, and no specific parent/child reunion area.

Kids Kilometer – 9:30a  October 4, 2014

The Kids Kilometer is a 1k race for children ages 12 and under and will start and finish under the same start and finish line that the half marathon and 5k use.  All participants will receive a cotton t-shirt and a finisher medal.

The Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon presented by Bon Secours In Motion starts at 8a at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.  All runners will “crawl” past the beautiful waterfront in downtown Hampton, Virginia.  Runners will make their way down the historic Chesapeake Ave. and back to the Hampton Convention Center for a crawlin’ fun time at the post-race party. All Half Marathon runners will receive a unique medal, short sleeve technical shirt, access to the post-race party and a finisher’s item.
