Day of Race Parking:

With over 1,500 participants the main parking lot at Northwood High School will fill up early.  We recommend that you carpool with friends if at all possible.   In the event the main parking lot fills up, additional parking is available on the other side of Portola Parkway.  View this map for additional parking locations

If you have questions regarding this event please contact our Race Director, Louie Muniz,  at lmuniz_sahs@yahoo.com

Secure online registration is provided by Active.com.  Click the link below to register now.  If you prefer to register by mail or FAX, a printable registration form is available on the Registration page.

Online Registration Extended: 

Good News!  Because of the changes in the Packet Pick Up process by Gemini Timing  you can register online with your credit card any time before 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning.  At 5:00 a.m. the Active.com database will be shutdown and you will be required to register with a Scantron Form and pay with cash, check, or money only.

Changes to Packet Pick-up Process: 

Gemini Timing  has developed a new system for distributing bibs and timing chips.  Because of this change bibs will be distributed by a participant number rather than alphabetical order.  The number assigned to each participant will be documented on Thursday morning at the following website address:  http://www.geminitiming.com/posts/timberwolf-5k.  This new process applies both to Early Packet Pick Up on Friday, and Day of Race Packet Pick Up.

Early Packet Pick-up: 

We are striving to make the registration process as easy as possible for all of you.  We welcome you to come pick up your commemorative Tee-shirt, goody bag and race number the day before your race, Friday, February 17.  Our friendly staff will be at Custom Bodies Fitness, 4880 Irvine Boulevard, Irvine, CA, 92620,   (714) 544-4010  from 3:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to take care of all your registration needs for both the 5K and 1K events.  View this map for directions.   Custom Bodies Fitness website:  www.custombodiesfitness.com
