Participant Instructions


Registration is available online at MCHF5K.COM until Thursday, October 26, at 6 p.m. Race morning registration/packet pick-up is available from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Please arrive early to avoid long lines.


All participants will receive a custom event tech shirt at packet pickup. All pre-registered participants will receive a t-shirt.



The timing system will be the Ipico Sports Dual Frequency disposable RFID Bib Tag.  The Dual Frequency technology provides for the highest read rates & most accurate times in the industry.  Bibs should be worn on the front of the racer’s t-shirt only. Care must be taken to not wrinkle, fold, or otherwise damage the timing chip that is attached to the back of the Racing Bib.

Results will be posted live during the event and will be available online immediately after the race with the photography link. Additionally, all participants will receive an email immediately after the event with their race time and the link to the race photos.



  • Please make sure you have your race number on your shirt in order to be timed accurately.

  • Participants wearing earphones are asked to only use one speaker in order to listen to instructions on the course.

  • Please stay to the RIGHT during the race and be courteous to other runner’s trying to pass. 



The following award categories will be presented after the 5K: Overall Winner Male and Female (1st, 2nd, & 3rd place); Grand Masters Male and Female; Wheelchair push, and Age groups. You can visit following the race for your race results and photos.

Note: A participant's age for the Annual Miami Children's Health Foundation 5K Run/Walk is based on their age on December 31st, 2017. For example, if you are currently 34 years old but will be turning 35 in November, your age will appear as 35 in the results standings.
