 Whitaker Bank Black Cat Chase 5K Race and Fun Run/Walk


Thanks to everyone who came to the 2015 Black Cat Chase.  Almost 1800 registered, and 1657 crossed the finish line.  The weather was perfect, the crowd was vibrant, and it proved to be a festive event again this year.  We'd love to hear your feedback as we start planning for the 2016 Black Cat Chase.  What did you like?  What should we change?  Email to share suggestions.  Thanks for your support!







If you received an overall or age group award but didn't stay for the post race ceremony, you can pick up your award at the Downtown YMCA.


If you registered and didn't pick up your packet, your shirt can be picked up at the Downtown YMCA.  Shirts are available for purchase.  Cotton shirts are $10, and performance shirts are $15.  If you want youth sizes or adult medium in cotton or performance adult small, please email to order one.  All other sizes are available at the Downtown Y. 



Event pictures were taken by April Cole with Digital Expressions and Capital Living.  Photos will be posted on Capital Living about a week post race.  We will make a post on Facebook and update our website when pictures are available.  There were also a few race photos taken by The State Journal
