However, because we order the t-shirts several weeks before the 5K race date, we occasionally run low on some requested t-shirt sizes. You must be a registered participant to receive your free t-shirt. If you are not a registered participant in the 5K, you may purchase a t-shirt for $5.
A: Goldenwest will make every effort to announce the winners of the 5K approximately one hour after the race begins. All official times will be posted on the Goldenwest website at www.gwcu.org the day of the event. Additionally, you can check your race results in real-time using your mobile phone. Just scan the tag printed on your race bib with your smart phone and any freely-available QR code app.
