3rd Annual 5K Prediction Race


Wednesday, April 11, 2018


Clinton announces its 3rd Annual 5k Prediction Race!

In this indoor run/walk, participants first predict their finishing 5k time, and the person who completes the race closest to their prediction, wins!

The race is limited to 12 participants per session, with sessions on April 23, 25, and 27. Each race begins at 12:15, with racer check-in at 12:00pm.

The theme this year is the Rockin' 80's, with prizes also awarded for best 80's workout attire, and an 80's artist/band song matching contest.

This event is free and open to CCC students, faculty, and staff. Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the CCC Eagle's Nest Food Pantry.

Pre-registration sign-up sheets for each date will be posted on the office door of Eric Arnold and Angie Alphonso (office room number 109H; located on the 1st floor of the Forrence Center (gym building)). You can sign-up between 10 AM-8 PM Monday-Thursday, between 10 AM-4 PM on Friday, or you can email one of us and we will gladly pencil you in. Pre-registration will be made available to all until Friday, April 20th.


Complete Guidelines are as follows:

  • Participation is open to CURRENT students, faculty and staff members. A waiver MUST be signed on race day.
  • To allow for an enjoyable and safe run/walk (and to limit congestion) space is limited to the first 12 students, faculty or staff members who sign-up on each of the above listed dates. Therefore, pre-registration for your date of choice is highly recommended.
  • Pre-registration sign-up sheets for each date will be posted on the office door of Eric Arnold and Angie Alphonso (office room number 109H; located on the 1st floor of the Forrence Center (gym building)). You can sign-up between 10 AM-8 PM Monday-Thursday, between 10 AM-4 PM on Friday, or you can email one of us and we will gladly pencil you in. Pre-registration will be made available to all until Friday, April 20th.
  • Participants must be checked-in, on the indoor track, and ready to run/walk by 12:10 PM. The race starts promptly at 12:15 PM. Late starts will not be allowed.
  • The course is 37 laps on the CCC indoor track (where 12 laps = 1 mile; 37 laps = 5K/3.1 miles). Since it is a prediction race, participants are not allowed to use or carry any watches, phones, timing devices, headphones, or any other electronic equipment during the race. At race check-in, participants will be asked to predict their finishing time for the 37 laps (5K/3.1 miles).
  • You will not be running or walking in silence though. Hits from the Rockin’ ‘80s will be playing!!! So you can still “Walk Like an Egyptian” and feel free to say “Ain’t nothin’ gonna Break My Stride”!
  • Prizes will be awarded to the top student runner and walker, and the top faculty or staff runner and walker who most closely predicts their own finishing time.
  • Prizes will also be awarded for the best ‘80s workout attire sported by a student runner or walker, and by a faculty or staff runner or walker.
  • And in keeping with our ‘80s theme, additional prizes will be awarded for our ‘80s artist/band song matching contest.
