The Fenton Pokerfest 5K Run/Walk is for anyone 21 years old and up. You don’t have to be a great runner or a runner at all for this event. Runners and walkers of all physical ability can participate in this event. All you have to have is some luck to win the Fenton Pokerfest 5K Run/Walk. The person with the best poker hand wins the grand prize (1 night stay at River City Casino, plus $50 to their restaurants), not the fastest time.
Each participant will receive one playing card at check-in, at each “K” and at the finish line to complete a full poker hand. NO TRADING CARDS. Each card will be in a separate, sealed envelope. Participants will turn in their five envelopes without opening them (if the seal on any envelope is broken when turned in, the participant will be disqualified). In case of a tie, there will be a tiebreaker. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd overall male and female finishers will be recognized, but there is no official timing.
All participants will receive a run t-shirt (sign up by February 10th to guarantee a t-shirt).
