The Dragons 5K Presented by Orthopedic Associates is going VIRTUAL!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dragons 5K for 2020 has now gone virtual. What this means is that you can register for the race, then run, walk, or hike your own Dragons 5K in your neighborhood, on a treadmill or at a local park, and then simply input your time online. You will still receive your swag bag of items including the 5K t-shirt, medal, and Dragons hat (we will have to reach out to you by email regarding the four (4) lawn tickets to a Dragons game once we know more regarding our season). Our top priority is public safety and we feel a strong responsibility to our 5K participants and fans therefore we felt it best to switch our race to a virtual one for this year.

When & Where

Sign up and run/walk or stroll a 5K of your own design! You can do the race any time between now and July 18, 2020 and then upload your results! The course is up to you. You can even turn your 5K into a nature walk and have your course be a nature trail.

How to Submit Results

Results can be submitted now through July 18, 2020. You can submit online or by logging into your RunSignUp account.



Race Day Info

8:00 a.m. - All participants will line up at the start line at the intersection of Patterson and Monument. Please line up based on your expected finish time and pace signs. All 5K participants will be electronically timed.

Course Info

The 3.1 mile course starts at Day Air Ballpark, winds through Deeds Point MetroPark and finishes on North Patterson Blvd across from the stadium plaza.

Race Swag Bag

All participants receive FOUR (4) lawn tickets to a future Dragons game, custom Dragons 5K t-shirt, Dragons hat, and a NEW finisher's medal. 

You will be able to pick-up your swag bag of Dragons 5K gear in late August (tentative timeframe for now). We are hopeful we can conduct a safe, in person pick-up by this time. We will communicate the specific dates and timeframes for the pick-up of your items as we get closer to the original race date of July 18. You must pick-up your swag bag or designate another individual to do this for you (shipping will not be an option).

Regarding the Dragons lawn tickets - we will email you directly once we know more regarding the 2020 season. Should we not be able to play this season, we will provide the lawn tickets for the 2021 season.
