Participants can register to run in person or virtually. Covid19 safety precautions will be implemented at the live event.
Registrants will receive running bibs, t-shirts and medallions. Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place men's and women's finishers. We also are offering a special challenge to participants...a $100 cash prize for any runners (on-site event only) who can complete the race in 16 minutes and 49 seconds! We are sure this will give participants a fun, challenging, goal for their personal training achievements.
