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! 

Registration Price Reduced

Adults (ages 13+): $20 + tax
Children (ages 12 & under): $10 + tax

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


The 2020 price does not include a T-shirt. Our organization is too small to handle shipping T-shirts but we have partnered with a T-shirt company to offer a way to order Hairpin merchandise online that will be shipped directly to you! Once you have registered, we will send you a Hairpin Merchandise Order Form. 

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