New Years Day 5K 2022

January 1, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Location, location, location!  New for 2022, you are invited to help MCRRC ring in the New Year with a scenic out & back course starting and finishing at Lake Needwood!  This popular race is a must-do for many and a chance to trade in those old chips for shiny, new 2022 member bib & chips!

Refreshments will be served in the parking lot, so dress warm & start the New Year off right with this great 5K.

A course map is available here.


MCRRC Members –

This race is part of our low-key race series and is FREE for MCRRC Members.  To signup for your free 2022 MCRRC member bib, please signup here.

*** If you already signed up for a personalized 2022 bib, you do NOT need to register online – your bib will be waiting for you at registration.

All members must signup for a new bib & chip.  If you have a 2020/21 (or older) chip, please bring it with you to exchange for a 2022 bib & chip.  If you are a new member, or no longer have an older chip, please remember to bring your $5 chip deposit with you.

Non-MCRRC Members

Registration will open to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 per race for participants ages 18 & over and $10 for participants under 18.  Online registration will remain open until the start of the race.  Late registrants may register online before leaving the house or from your smartphone at the race site.  Please remember to bring your credit card or cash with you if you plan to register on race morning. *** This is a very popular race and advanced registration is highly encouraged to avoid long lines on race morning! REGISTER HERE.

Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area.  A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.


If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact so that we can move your registration to another MCRRC low-key event and open up a spot for someone else.  Monetary refunds will not be provided.

During the Race:

While masks are no longer required, please be sensitive to those around you whose comfort level or health situation may be different than yours, especially to our younger participants who are not yet able to be vaccinated.

As a condition of our race permits, social distancing is still required.  We suggest all participants keep a mask with you for use any time social distancing cannot be achieved.

Health & Wellness:

Now more than ever, please pay close attention to your health prior to attending this event.  If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or another person with COVID-19, please stay home.  If you have cold symptoms, a mild fever, or just “don’t feel well,” we ask that you please stay home. All participants are subject to temperature checks at the discretion of our race staff.


MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers.  Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event.  Signup to volunteer HERE.
