All 8K runners will receive a technical shirt and souvenir finisher’s medal. The Hampton Bay Days 8K After Party will take place at the conclusion of the race, complete with live music, refreshments, and more.
In addition, the Color the Dolphin Fun Run, a “colorful” race for the whole family, returns for its second year! Runners will be doused in brilliant colors (all of which commemorate the Chesapeake Bay) along the one (1) mile course. All entrants will receive a white short-sleeved shirt with dolphin design, good bag, and entry into the Hampton Bay Days 8K After Party.
New this year is the Bay Days 8K Commemorative Medal Contest. The competition, open to amateur and professional artists, allows entrants the opportunity to design the finisher medal that all runners will receive after the race, as well as the medal for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners. There is no entry fee. Winners will receive $100 cash and have the option of riding in the official pace car leading the Third annual Bay Days 8K on Saturday, September 6.
