May I walk the 5K?

You may walk, skip, stroll, jog and run as long as you have a great time! However, we do ask that you start in a later heat if you will be walking.

What should I Wear?

On May 10, the temperature in St. Cloud, MN typically ranges from 50°F to 60°F so please dress accordingly! If you register EARLY, you can score a FREE shirt that you can wear to the event! 

How old do I have to be to participate?

All ages are welcomed and encouraged to participate!

Are kids allowed?

Of course they are, it's Bernick's "FAMILY" Fitness Series!

May I participate with child in stroller?

Yes. Please start at the back of the race where you’ll have more wiggle room. Inform your kids what to expect.

May I rollerblade or bike ride?

The Wells Fargo Move & Groove 5K course will be reserved for walkers, joggers and runners only.

May I run with my friendly dog?

Because we want to keep everyone and all pets safe, we discourage having pets accompany you on the course. However, if you feel that you can keep your pet safe without interrupting other participants, please use your best judgment.


May I register the day of the event?

You bet! However, we do encourage you to register in advance at scymca.org to avoid any delays or other concerns! Please note that the free shirt is for early registration only.

When and where do I pick-up my packet?

We strongly encourage you to pick up your race packet at the St. Cloud YMCA the day before the race from 4-7pm. Please keep an eye on your email for all racer info the week before the race. Please do your best to get your packet ahead of time!

May a friend pick up my race packet and vice versa?

Yes! Please make sure that your friend has your confirmation email (printed or via phone), or make sure they have their photo ID ready, so we can record their name in order to keep track of who picked up your packet. 

What if I register and can't make it?

We are sorry, but the Wells Fargo Move & Groove 5K is a non-profit event and refunds will not be issued.

What if it rains or snows?

The Wells Fargo Move & Groove 5K is a rain (or snow) or shine event! In lieu of lightning, we will postpone the event by half-hour increments. After a 3rd lighting postponement, we will cancel the event for safety concerns.

May I run the race if I am not registered?
