Many thanks to everyone who attended the 2016 event ! The new September date for 2017: Sunday September 10th.
Welcome to the Gallup Gallop 5K (& mile)! This event celebrates life, family, fun and fitness in Ann Arbor's scenic Gallup Park where the Huron River pools into Geddes Pond. This traditionally summer event is moving to late summer in 2017 due to construction and increased park usage in mid-summer. September may well be its new home! Same same beautiful park, same great course, same fun event! We hope to see you in September.
2017 marks the events 37th anniversary. Join us for a great family friendly community event and make your life - at least for one day - a walk (or run) in the park ! (Check out a nice 10 minute 2013 race video.)
Course & Race Headquarters
The Gallup Gallop 5k takes place on the nationally recognized Gallup Park Trail. It starts and finishes near Gallup Park Canoe Livery; it is a 2 lap course. It is flat, fast, certified and scenic, circling Geddes Pond. Most of it is on asphalt, but part of it is on wood chips. The Race Headquarters are the Gallup Park Meeting Room, adjacent to the Canoe Livery.
Timing: new this year we will use chip timing! (no more pull tags - yea!) Running Fit ( RF Timing ) will handle our timing this year.
Parking: There will be some parking in Gallup Park (in a couple of locations - see course map), but most of it is across the street on the grass near Huron HS's athletic fields. We plan to have a couple of volunteers helping to direct parking there before the race.
Strollers: Jogging strollers are allowed but are discouraged. The course is rather narrow in places, and it's also not entirely paved. If you do choose to bring one, please start near the back, use caution and be considerate out on the course.
Dogs: I love dogs and have one myself, but no dogs in the race please.

Severe weather cancellation policy:
If there is severe weather on race day, the start of the race will be delayed to allow for it to pass so the race can proceed safely. If the weather is bad enough and remains in the area for an extended period of time, there is a chance the event will need to be cancelled. If so, unfortunately refunds will not be issued as all event costs are already committed by then. Cancelling 5K events for weather is very rare, but we will consult on-line radar to make sure it is safe. Any decision to cancel the event will be made by the race director at the event on race day and will be announced there only - it would not be announced on-line via e-mail a head of time.
