  • How much is the entry fee?

    The iFiveK race entry fee is  broken down into three tiers based on time of registration - Early registration - $35.00, Regular registration - $40.00 and Late registration  fee - $50.00. The race registration fee includes the run and post-race celebration.

  • How do I register for the race?

    Registration for the iFiveK is online only. Stay tuned for 2021 registration details. Please note that there are no race day registrations.

  • Do I need a paper ticket?


  • Where do I pick up my t-shirt and packet? Can I pick up my friend’s packet?

    Early packet pick-up is held at the Charleston Digital Corridor office (385 Meeting Street, 1st floor) the day before Race Day from 8am to 5pm. Race Day packet pick-up is at Riverfront Park (race venue) from 4:00pm - 5:00pm.

    Registrants can pick up a friend's or team packet by signing for the packet. If you pick up a race packet and your friend/team does not get that packet, they will not be issued a new packet (which includes race number, timing chip and t-shirt).

  • What if there is bad weather?

    The iFiveK is a rain or shine event. Should there be inclement weather or flooding, there will be no rain date or rescheduling of the event; no refunds will be given. However, we will make every effort to provide a truly meaningful event despite inclement weather.

  • What happens if I become injured after I enter and cannot participate?

    There are no medical comps, rollovers or refunds. Transfers of registration must be completed prior to two weeks before the race and are at the discretion of the race director.

  • Where is the starting line? When should I get there?

    The race starts and finishes at Riverfront Park. There will be directional signs, as well as volunteers onsite to assist you should you have problems locating the starting line. We suggest arriving at Riverfront Park no later than 5:30 pm. The race will start promptly at 6:30pm.
