Timing Device

The MK5K® will be timed using Chronotrack D-Tags. To be included in the results and eligible for an award, you must wear the D-Tag properly on your shoe. Your D-Tag will be attached to your bib when you pick it up with your packet. Remove it and follow the instructions printed on the tag itself. It's important that you only bend the D-Tag in the proper place. Bending it across the chip will disable it, and it won't read when you start or finish.


You must wear a timing device to be eligible for awards for the 5K. Awards will be given to the following categories:

  • 1st overall Male, Female and Masters (40+)
  • Top 3 finishers in the following categories: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+
  • Top 3 finishers among Mary Kay Independent Sales Force Members
  • Top 3 finishers among Mary Kay Employees


We've got great prizes lined up, including:

  • Hotel Packages
  • Designer Purses
  • Jewelry
  • We all win by believing in and supporting such a wonderful organization!
