We're Excited for Saturday!

The Lucky Run is coming up this Saturday, March 23 at Davis High School and we look forward to including you in the event! Below are race details to help ensure a smooth event morning. 

Bib Pick Up & Start Times

Bib and t-shirt pick up for this event is held race morning only. We will have plenty of volunteers at registration to check you in and provide you with your bib number and t-shirt. Plan to arrive at registration at 7am in order to allow yourself sufficient time to check in, warm up, use restrooms, put your warmer layers in your car, etc. Those in the Kids Runs should arrive by 9am. 

Start Times for 3/23/24

6:30 am – Bib Pick Up Opens
8:00 am – 5K Start
8:10 am – 2K, 7K, 10K Start
9:30 am – Kids 1/2 & 1/4 Mile Start

Your Bib Number

Your bib number should be worn on the front of your body on your outermost layer of clothing. Safety pins will be available at registration.

Race Venue and Parking

The event will be held in the gym parking lot at Davis High School, which is located just south of the football stadium and track off Oak Avenue. No participant parking will be available in the gym lot itself; we encourage you to park in the very spacious main student parking lot for the school, which is located at 315 West 14th Street, Davis, CA 95616.

From the parking lot, it is a short walk through the campus to the staging area for the race. Registration will be located near the start/finish line. 

General Race Information and FAQ

Course Info

  • Participate in the race you’re registered for. It is important that you participate in the race for which you are registered. Race bibs will be color coded by distance so that you can be accurately directed on the route. If you need to change distances, you can do so when you check in at registration, or, we can take care of it through 3pm Friday by email. 
  • Start On Time. You must start at the preplanned start time for your race (see times above). This is not only to ensure you receive an accurate finish time, but for your safety on the course with crossing intersections. If for some unforeseen reason you arrive after your race has started, check in with the race timer at the finish line as to how to proceed and whether it is possible for you to still participate. 
  • Course Etiquette. On the course, be mindful of other participants. Generally speaking, one should run or walk on the right and pass on the left (similar to a freeway). Try to avoid running/walking more than two abreast so that there is space for people behind you to pass. 
  • Start Line Etiquette. Line up at the start by anticipated pace; only those planning on running under a 7:00 mile should be at the front. Walkers should be at the very back. Those with strollers and dogs should start towards the back as well. Please do not bring dogs that are not well behaved in crowds, around other dogs, or loud noises.  
  • Water Stations. Water stations will be available on the 5K (one), 7K (two), and 10K (two). Each will have water and Gatorade. If you anticipate you will need fluids more frequently, we suggest carrying some with you. 
  • Review Course Maps in advance. Course maps are available on our website here. There will be volunteers, cones, chalk and signage along the route. Be sure to pay attention to signs and volunteers to ensure you follow the correct course.
  • Kids Fun Runs. The kids fun runs will start and finish at the same spot (main start/finish line) as the timed races; listen to the announcer for directions as to when to line up. Both distances will start together at 9:30 am. 

Results, Awards, Bonus Medals, & Refreshments

  • Results will be available at results.changeofpace.com; or, scan the QR code on your bib number. 
  • Awards. Overall and age group awards will be available for pick up at the awards tent. Please check your results before leaving even if you don’t usually win an award. Unclaimed awards are not mailed. 
  • Bonus Medal. Winter/Spring Challenge medals will be available for pick up at the “Tour de FIT” medal pick up booth. 
  • Food. Pancakes, fruit and other refreshments will be available in the booth area. Be sure to also check out our vendors. 
  • Photos. Professional photographers will be on the route during the event to capture your image as you participate. Pictures will be available 3-5 business days after the race here facchinophotography.zenfolio.com/f830113370. You will also receive an email when they are live.
  • Stampede award pick-up. If you need to pick up a Davis Stampede award, they will be available at the Volunteer Check In tent.
