TYO is converting team bikes to tubeless. In doing so we noticed quite a few bikes have nontubeless and very worn tires (including the scud bikes). If folks have 29er and 27.5 tubeless tires they wish to donate to a great cause....Now would be a good time.. That is all and thanks!

Unfortunately our fall 2015 Springfield 5K has been canceled. Most likely due to the change from our traditional spring date, combined with the large number of other fall races, our registrations we're too low at the one month out point. All registrations will be refunded. For 2016 we're planning to move the race back to our traditional spring date tied to Springfield Days festivities.

Big Changes for the Springfield 5k Race and Springfield Days Weekend

In the past years, the Springfield 5K (and its earlier iterations) anchored Springfield Days weekend Saturday with a centrally-located fun and festive event for area residents, businesses and civic organizations; put Springfield on the running map with a signature, full-amenity road race; and raised substantial funds for nonprofits providing recreation and fitness programs for local under-served youth

At least for 2015, the first two focus areas have become incompatible. Having a road race with 1000+ participants in a celebratory and visible location means establishing a location for pre and post race HQ and parking, closing roads and intersections, and limiting traffic and access options in the surrounding area. While a challenge before, the recent opening of the Springfield Town Center has increased traffic demands on most of the central business district arteries, and as a result the 2014 course is no longer possible.

So, for 2015, the Race Committee has elected to split the Springfield race, having 2 events with different times, locations, and focus.

On Saturday May 30 of Springfield Days weekend we will have a lower-key noncompetitive jog/walk (1.5 miles?) with nice amenities afterwards (breakfast?) -- think combining some morning exercise with a social. A Springfield Days Stride! This would avoid nearly all road and access issues. Springfield Town Center has offered a nice race HQ location, which will also give us access to a nice route using mostly paved paths. More details and registration should be available starting in early April.

We anticipate holding the signature Springfield road race in the fall in different area location -- likely using smaller roads, paths, and parkland to give us more control and flexibility. More information about the Springfield race will be available in early summer.

Thank you for your past support and participation.

• A roomy start area adjacent to Springfield Mall
• Even more live music
• We're the host race for the 35th Annual Patriots’ Cup Corporate Challenge competition
• A 1K fun run/walk
• Even better post race munchies, including Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits!

We look forward to seeing you at the race this year – if not as a participant, then as a volunteer, spectator or sponsor!
