Participants can cool down, gather for awards, enjoy snacks & beverages, and socialize... while also checking out a few vendors we plan to have at the event.

With your ticket purchase, you'll receive an event-branded t-shirt, a DI4W car freshener, and other swag items. Plus, enjoy snacks and refreshments after the race. Stay tuned for details on a one-night bag pick-up the week of the event. **Please Note: If you sign up after May 17th, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the correct t-shirt size**

Choose from three ticket options: 

  • Competitive (timed)
  • Non-competitive (untimed)
  • Kids (12 & under) - Kids who wish to race competitively for placement and prizes must purchase a competitive ticket. 

Competitive racers will be grouped by age and gender. Medals will be awarded to top recipients, and prizes (to be announced) will be given to the top overall finishers. Additionally, we're offering remembrance signs again this year, which will be placed around the race path. Buyers can take their signs home after the race if they wish.

While we adore our furry friends, we kindly request that you leave them at home for the DI4W Legacy Run - 5K event. We want all participants, especially those racing competitively, to have a smooth and focused experience. Your cooperation ensures that everyone can fully enjoy the race day festivities. Thank you for understanding!

If you are an individual or business looking to become a sponsor of the event, please review our sponsorship proposal or email us for more information ( We encourage sponsors to bring their "teams", as all sponsor levels include specific ticket amounts. We would love to have you on board as a sponsor and partner of DI4W!
