Please allow extra commute time when planning for arrival. All entrances off of Lombardi Avenue to Lambeau Field will be closed in preparation for the race. Please enter Lambeau Field off of Oneida Street or Ridge Road. There will be no charge for parking and will be available on a first come first serve basis.

The staging area for the 5K will be setup on Lombardi Avenue, in front of the Lambeau Field Atrium. There will be multiple waves of runners: the first wave is designated for the fastest competitive runner with digression among the remaining six waves based on average speed. Please place yourself accordingly.
Wave 1: Under 7:00 minute mile runners
Wave 2: 7:00-9:00 minute mile runners
Wave 3: 9:00-11:00 minute mile runners
Wave 4: 11:00 minute plus mile runners
Wave 5: Runners with strollers
Wave 6: Walkers
Wave 7: Walkers with strollers
Participants in the Packers 5K race may move back waves but may not move up waves. We want this to be safe, exciting and memorable for all, please be courteous to ALL participants.
Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers for each division for the 5K race. In addition, the top 3 finishers overall (both male and female) will be awarded prizes.
On average, Saturday's temperature is sunny and hot. It is very important that race participants stay hydrated. There will be two water stations on the race course. These stations will provide participants with water and Gatorade. However, please feel free to bring your own hydration along. Water and Gatorade will also be provided for participants before and after the race.
We are excited to allow participants the unique experience of running down the player's tunnel and around Lambeau Field. The course will be roped off and will keep participants on a rubber track around the outside edge of the field. Please stay within the roped area. If any participant steps on the field, the participant will be immediately disqualified and escorted off the premises.
In case of inclement weather, please tune into 101.1 WIXX for Packers 5K updates.
The stadium bowl will be open for family and friends to view participants as they run/walk through Lambeau Field. All viewers will be directed to enter through the Oneida Nation Gate on the east side of the stadium.
