Registration is now open for the 8th annual Polk City Four Seasons Festival 5k/8k races on Saturday, July 21st! We are once again pleased to offer an affordable, family-friendly event for all ages and ability levels to promote Polk City and our annual Four Seasons Festival. If you plan to join us, you may register now using the following link:
We want to highlight a number of items for 2018:
- NEW! We are adding a three member TEAM category to the 5k and 8k races. Grab a couple of friends or family members, register online under a common team name, and get ready to take on other teams!
- NEW! If you are interested in participating in the event but a race shirt isn’t a high priority for you, we’ve now made them optional during the registration process (a $10 reduction per entry)
- We’ll keep our exciting and spectator friendly downhill sprint to the finish line on the town square!
- Our race entry fees continue to be among the lowest in the metro and are structured to encourage family participation
- Friday packet pick up incentive
- Medals for 5k/8k age group winners
- Cash prizes for top finishers
- Early-bird, discounted registration entry fee
- High quality performance cotton race shirt guaranteed for early entrants
- Free kids races (ages 3-8) with prizes for all finishers
- Post-race food and beverage
