$20 for One Entry to 5K Race ($40 Value)
On Saturday, November 17, participants gather at Waterloo Ice House before embarking on a leisurely 5K course. Each race entry includes a radio, a toy microphone, and a commemorative T-shirt or tank top. For more details, see the race info.
Participants compete more for the honor loudest than fastest in the Karaoke 5K, singing along to the tunes coming from their handheld radios as they stroll through the race. Each radio plays the same playlist of popular sing-alongs, encouraging runners to sing into toy microphones as they go, which adds rock-star flair less extravagant than stretch-limo rides to the finish line. The race aims to raise $10,000 for Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit that builds homes for people in need.
