Sunburst Races (half, 10K, 5K run & walk)
Sunburst Races 2022, presented by KeyBank, is back to kick off summer in The Bend! Race day is officially set for Saturday, June 4, 2022.
We offer a half marathon, 10K run, 5K run, and a 5K fitness walk. No strollers, joggers, wagons, baby carriers, etc. are allowed in any event. The minimum age for participation in the 5K or 10K is 6 years of age (on race day) and the minimum age of participation in the Half Marathon is 10 years of age (on race day).
Sunburst Races is certified by the United States of America Track and Field governing body on all courses. People travel from across the United States and even from abroad to compete in Sunburst. It truly is a special event! In fact, many participants join us year after year. In 2022, we'll celebrate the 38th running of Sunburst Races!
Sunburst will offer packet pickup on Friday, June 3, 2022 at the Century Center in downtown South Bend. Participants will be able to pick up their bibs before they lace up for some Saturday/race day fun! All race proceeds benefit our friends at Beacon Childrens Hospital.
On race day, Saturday, June 4, 2022, the races will start at Four Winds Field. Again this year, all events will finish on the 50-yard line of the iconic Notre Dame Stadium. The multiple events we offer make it possible for all fitness levels to participate.
As we continue to navigate the complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is very likely that we will be taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe. As race day approaches, detailed information will be shared. In collaboration with our Medical Director and Medical Advisory Board, we will closely monitor the situation and follow recommendations from both the St. Joseph County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
We look forward to seeing you race weekend 2022! Best of luck with your training!
