The Runaway Jim 5K will be making it’s first appearance in eight years and fans will be able to hit the race track running on Saturday morning. Runners are encouraged to pre register online by June 30th at NOON (as space is limited) by sending an email to with their name, email address and cell phone number. The fastest Male and Female will be awarded trophies, along with the over all 2nd & 3rd place finishers.

If running 3.4 miles isn’t your thing, you and up to five of your friends can sign up for the Ninth Annual Super Wiffle Ball Tournament that will take place in the morning, prior to Phish taking the stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You can sign up and find the official rules here.
