This is a small informal event capped at 100 participants. We will update the website with how full it is once it gets to 50% full. Everyone will get a finishers medal as well as a goodie bag. We will have bananas, snacks, water, etc. To keep costs low we do not offer any special awards or t-shirts. This is not your normal large festival like race. We are a low key race that emphasizes a more personal satisfaction to racing. Thank you and look forward to seeing you out there!
Also to avoid active.com fees, you can just mail the fee along with all your info.
Email for more info. Results will be posted on this page usually by the evening of the race day. We emphasize a more relaxed, fun, and personal racing experience.
