Registration

The Vaisakhi 5K is about getting the community together to celebrate Vaisakhi, and also to celebrate fitness, sports, and the general feeling of Chardi Kala.
We encourage runners of all demographics to participate in the Vaisakhi 5K. In previous years, we’ve had marathon runners and first-time racers alike complete the race. Participants may run, jog, or walk to the finish line.
The race is open to runners aged 12 or older. Children younger than 12 years old may attend the Vaisakhi 5K as spectators and enjoy post-race festivities.
You can register online here, by calling (844)-VAISAKHI, or in-person at tri-state area Gurdwaras on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings. The last day to register is April 21, but we encourage you to register early as we have limited space.
Registration is $25 per runner.
All runners must register for the Vaisakhi 5K prior to race day. All registered runners will receive a bib, t-shirt, medal, drawstring bag, and a number of other goodies.
No. In order to make race-day operations run as smoothly as possible, we will not be able to accommodate registrations on the morning of the Vaisakhi 5K. Interested runners should register as soon as possible before April 21.
Runners can participate either as individuals or in teams. Each team can have a maximum of 10 runners.
