Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the size of our event, coupled with permitting uncertainties, we have decided the safest option is to switch to virtual mode.   We want our running community to remain healthy and still celebrate the In the cut 5k. Thus we are switching all current and future entrants to the virtual option.


There's no official starting line. Participants select a distance and sign up. Our race day challenge allows runners or walkers to complete the distance at any time between the specified dates and upload the results for participants to earn their finisher medal anywhere.

Runners will be given the opportunity to download an electronic bib as well.

"For us, virtual racing is not a replacement, but an addition to our conventional race. Realizing the many unknowns exist today until we can get back to the course, this is an opportunity for everyone to continue to participate." - In the cut 5k

Why do we do it


In the cut 5k was inspired by a group of men to help move our community toward a more healthy way of living. What better way to do that than with the objective of completing a 5k. While there is a race, the event also has partnered with health care groups and local personal training and fitness facilities to bring about a change. Come run with us. See you at the start line. 

Without you there is no us. Thank you to our sponsors for your support.
