A record number of more than 4,900 runners and walkers participated in the 13th annual Coldwell Banker West Shell Redlegs Run at Great American Ball Park, generating nearly $200,000 for the Reds Community Fund. The previous record was 4,381 participants in 2011.
* Your official 5K start time of 8 a.m. or 8:10 a.m. will be printed on your race bib. To help with traffic flow, we ask that you start with your assigned group.
** If you are an elite 5K runner, you must be in the 8 a.m. starting group to be eligible for the top three 5K male and top three 5K female awards, as those are based on gun time. All other awards will be given based on chip time. (Qualifying times for elite classification are sub 18:00 for men and sub 22:00 for women.)
All participants receive a race t-shirt (DriFit for 10K participants), post-race party on the Kroger Fan Zone and one View Level ticket voucher to the Tuesday, August 18 Reds vs. Kansas City Royals game.
Starting Starting August 1 registration is only available at packet pick-ups and on race morning.

All 5K and 10K participants will be electronically timed. The One Mile Family Run and Gapper's Kids Fun Run are not chip-timed. However, there are race clocks at the finish line. Tags will be assigned at packet pick-up and verification will occur for those who pre-register.
Please give yourself ample time to travel to Great American Ball Park, find parking, and get to the start line. Traffic will be very heavy on the morning of the race. The Reds Community Fund encourages arriving early before the race and carpooling. Be early if you plan on parking near the start line. Roads surrounding Great American Ball Park will close approximately 15-30 minutes prior to the beginning of the race. Please be aware of the Course Map when looking for parking. Roads will re-open approximately 30 minutes after the last participant clears each race section. All roads will open no later than 10 a.m.
Central Riverfront Garage will be pay-upon-entry from 5 a.m.- 10 a.m. for $5. The Central Riverfront Garage is the garage underneath and west of Great American Ball Park.
