  • There will be food and drink post-race.
  • 4 hour time limit for all events.
  • All first time half marathon and marathon finishers will receive a plaque that commemorates their first half or full marathon finish that the athlete will receive along with their finisher’s medal.
  • We are proud to announce that we have a non-binary registration option that has their own awards categories: overall and age groups.

We’ve received many emails about reducing race entry fees. To keep your racing fees as low as possible while still maintaining the fun race experience, for 2023 we have a new pricing model. Fast Finishes is now offering a base price entry fee that gets you a medal, our well-organized event, course fluids and a post-race grub. Our registration entry fees will no longer include a race t-shirt or jacket. Fast Finishes is known for high-end, well-designed SWAG at our events. Starting this year, you may order jackets and/or a race t-shirt during your registration as an add-on to your base registration fee.

If you have any comments about our new racing price model contact Mark Hughes at We are always happy to answer any questions you have about our races. For additional information and race updates please check our website:

All of our events feature a 10% discount on race entry for all service members and their family. Military discount link.

Thank you for participating in Fast Finishes Events!
