Registration is OPEN NOW!

The Hairpin 5K Run/Walk is the longest-running 5K in Door County and a great July 4 tradition for runners and walkers of all ages.  The race starts at 8am and takes runners up the challenge of the Fish Creek hill at the start, followed by a winding, closed road course down Gibraltar Bluff Road before we head down the famous Hairpin hill. Then we finish with a beautiful homestretch through the canopy and past the beautiful homes on Cottage Row.

Friends of Gibraltar Schools (FOG) has hosted the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk as a fundraising event for over 30 years with the proceeds providing all of the funding each year for field trips and enrichment experiences for students in grades K-12 at Gibraltar Schools in Fish Creek, Wisconsin.  Your participation allows Friends of Gibraltar to continue providing excellent educational programs for Gibraltar Schools. 

Your registration includes a keepsake Hairpin shirt, post-race snacks and your place in a Fish Creek July 4th tradition!

Refunds or transfers will not be given in the case of event cancellation.
