Virtual Hairpin 5k Run/Walk

The Hairpin 5K Run/Walk is the longest running 5K event in Door County, WI, and it has become a great July 4 tradition for runners and walkers of all ages. Friends of Gibraltar Schools has hosted the event as a fundraiser for over 30 years, with proceeds providing enrichment experiences for all K-12 students at Gibraltar Schools in Fish Creek.

Due to COVID-19, we are not able to host the physical event this year, but we hope you will keep the tradition going by taking part in the Virtual Hairpin 5K Run/Walk. Your participation will allow Friends of Gibraltar to continue providing excellent educational programs for Gibraltar Schools. Thank you!

Participants have from June 20 – July 5, 2020 to complete a 5K run/walk on a route of your choice.

Participants agree to comply with all CDC recommendations for social distancing at all times and also agree to wear proper attire including a face mask if required or suggested by current CDC guidelines.

We will miss being together for this event so please send photos or videos (1 minute or less) that we can share of your 5K run/walk to

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.
