REGISTERBUTTONEvery year, East Tosa businesses step up and help us offer our Run Tosa Run 5K race participants some of the best winner prize packages and prize drawings of any 5K around, and this year is no exception. This week, we’re revealing a new prize each day at 5:14 a.m., a nod to our race day — 5/14.

And you don’t have to be a fast runner to take home a prize. All of our 5K runners will be able to take part in a drawing after the race for additional prizes from local businesses. Check back at this link each morning this week. We’ll also be posting updates on Twitter and Facebook.

  • $25 gift certificate to Performance Running Outfitters (2)

Registration for Run Tosa Run 2016 on May 14 is well underway, and groups of three or more are encouraged to register as a team to compete for the title of our first team champion.

REGISTERBUTTONTeams of any size, from 3 to 303, can compete in the 5K race, and the top three fastest times from each team will be tallied afterward to crown our champion. Just be sure to identify your team name when you register here online.

Also new this year, we’re offering a $5 discount for all 5K runners who register online as part of a team of 6 or more runners. To take advantage of this offer, team captains should email with the team name and estimated number of runners.

Team registrations are great for organizations looking to rally members behind a cause, businesses looking to encourage employee fitness or simply friends looking to have a good time together in the beautiful, bustling East Tosa area. And it’s for a great cause: Proceeds from the race will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin.
