Please note this 5K course is not a certified 5K course but the MRF team will have an on-site timer to provide race results to all registered runners. The MRF team is not responsible for lost runners on the 5K course, and it is the responsibility of the runner to review the 5K course leading up to the event.


Miles for Melanoma is a rain or shine 5K event. 

The safety of our participants and attendees are our top priority and on-site MRF staff will make the call to delay an event start time or cancel an event-on-event day. This information will be communicated to all registered participants on event day via email.
