Join the 2020 VIRTUAL Hairpin 5K Run/Walk

The Hairpin 5K Run/Walk is the longest running 5K in Door County, WI and it is a great July 4 tradition for runners and walkers of all ages.  

This year due to COVID-19 Friends of Gibraltar will continue the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk event VIRTUALLY but will not host a physical 5K event on July 4. We look forward to seeing participants in person in future years on the Hairpin 5K course but for this year whether you are traveling to Door County or not please help us keep the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk going by participating virtually!

Friends of Gibraltar Schools 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, WI.  Your participation in the Virtual Hairpin 5K Run/Walk will allow Friends of Gibraltar to continue providing excellent educational programs for Gibraltar Schools. 

Virtual Participation is Easy & Fun

Participants will have from June 20 – July 5, 2020 to complete a 5K run/walk on a route of your choice. Friends of Gibraltar is not mandating that the participant run/walk any certain place to take part in this fun virtual challenge.

Runners, you will be able to submit your time and we will ship out medals for 1st place times in each age category and gender.

Runners and walkers, we will be drawing a participant name in each age category for a Door County gift basket. Your name will be automatically entered in the drawing when you register. If your name is drawn will we ship you a gift basket!

(In 2019 registration price was $30/adult and $15/children for early bird registration and $40/adults, $18/children on race day.)

Hairpin 5K T-Shirt and Merchandise Order 

This year we are offering our usual event cotton T-shirt with a 2020 Virtual Hairpin 5K design on the front and the sponsors on the back. We are also offering a synthetic shirt with UV protection and a hat that does not have the event year or the front and that is blank on the back. Even if you were not able to participate in the virtual event you can still purchase a T-shirt or a hat!

The 2020 registration price does not include a T-shirt. Our organization is too small to handle shipping T-shirts. We have partnered with FLS Banners in Sturgeon Bay, WI  to make ordering Hairpin merchandise available online and shipped directly to you!

We will take orders until July 15 and then FLS will print all of the ordered merchandise and ship it directly to you. We realize that some may have wanted the event shirt and or merchandise before July 4 but we are proud to continue our relationship with FLS Banners for the production of these items. They have produced the Hairpin shirts for years and they committed this year to make PPE items for Door County and we want to support their efforts! Thank you for your understanding and support! We would love to receive some photos of you wearing your Hairpin merchandise when it arrives.

We greatly appreciate the Hairpin 5K Run/Walk participants for their support for school students!
