JazzFest 5k Blues Race

SIGN UP! http://bit.ly/27DQbKW

Join us for a fun-filled “BLUES” JazzFest 25th celebration 5K. The race, presented by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, will be a fun way to celebrate music, summer, and blues! Now’s the time to comb your closest for “Blue” items. Pull on your most happening pair of blue knee-high athletic socks and slap on your blue head band and get ready for the bluesiest blues 5K around. Blue hair, make-up, clothes, tutu and blue housecoat (and who doesn’t like to run in a house coat…in July…in South Dakota) are all welcome. Come as your favorite “Blue” character…Blue Clues, Blues Brothers, Avatars, Smurfs, or Captain America…the bluer you can make it the more fun…just keep it family friendly!

For those more serious racers, we haven’t forgotten about you! Chip timing will still be available, but you are still more then welcome to wear blue running attire. Timing services for our 7th Annual JazzFest 5K will be provided by All Sport Central. Each participant in the 5K will be given a race number with chip at packet pickup. The Race/Walk will use the same route and it will be contained in Yankton Trail Park.
