2020 Run for the Ta Tas Photos

2020 Run for the Ta Tas Results

The Run for the Ta Tas is a 5K Chaser Race with a 1 Mile Kids Competitive Run, and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. But this is not your typical 5K – a Chaser Race is a unique race format where women start first, giving them a head start over the men. Men start exactly 2 mins & 30 secs after the women start (Hint on the name: Run For the Ta Tas).

For the 5K, to reduce crowding at the start line, runners with an anticipated finish time of 25 minutes or faster, will start in the competitive women’s and men’s wave. All other 5K runners/walkers will start together following the men’s competitive wave.
