Are headphones, ipods or MP3 players permitted?
You may wear your headphones, ipods or MP3 players; however, we ask that you keep the volume at a reasonable level for your own safety and out of courtesy for fellow participants.

You should still be able to hear participants and volunteers in proximity to you.

Do I need to return the chip?
No. We are using disposable chips that DO NOT need to be turned in after the race.

Are strollers allowed?
No. Due to the tight pathways used during the race, strollers and pets are not allowed.

What is the temperature that time of year?
According to weather.com, the average high is 82 degrees Fahrenheit and the average low is 62 degrees Fahrenheit.

Where should I park?
Parking is available near the Egg Lawn inside The Parklands. To enter The Parklands parking area, use the main entrance to Beckley Creek Park (15712 Shelbyville Road). All participants will receive final parking instructions by e-mail the week of the race.

Will there be in-race hydration?
Race participants are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to minimize the need to stop at on-course hydration stations. LSC will provide hydration in the form of Powerade that will be passed directly from the volunteer to the race participant. Due to COVID-19 Louisville Water will not provide Louisville pure tap® hydration stations during the pure tap® 5K. Single-use, recyclable bottles are the best sanitary option for participants this year. Bring your Louisville Water from home in a reusable bottle.

What will I receive for participating?
ALL participants will receive a commemorative Louisville pure tap® 5k race buff.

Participants will also receive bottled water, Powerade and pre-packaged snacks (energy bars, nuts, candy).

What is the 5k route?
The course information can be found by clicking the “Course” tab at the top navigation.

When is the last day to register?
The last day to register online is Oct.5, 2020, or when race hits its capacity of 750. There will be NO in-person registration at packet pickup or on race day.

Where do I get my race packet?
Packet pickup will be at the Louisville Water Tower Park on Wed., Oct. 7 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. There is no packet pickup on race day.

Can someone else pick up my packet for me?
No. Because of safety protocols and the need to take every participant’s temperature prior to race day, everyone will need to pick up their own packet.

What types of wheelchairs are allowed?
Push-rims are the only style of wheelchair allowed. The top male/female wheelchairs will be recognized.

Are there bathrooms on the course?
Bathrooms will be available (typically porta-potties) at the start line and near the water station along the course.

How do I get my results?
You will be able to get results on the puretap5K.com website immediately following the race.

What is the cancellation policy?
