Got several pairs of old running shoes (or any kind of shoes) just sitting in your closet? Well, bring them to us on race day, and we will give them a new life. We will find them a new home by donating them to Rowan County's needy. It will help them and give you a cleaner closet too!
Ugly Shoe Contest
The ugly shoe contest is back!! Any runner, walker, or volunteer at the race will have an opportunity to enter one of their shoes in the contest as soon as the race is completed. Anyone who presents both shoes will be disqualified! One will do the job. A video of the race finish will be consulted to ensure that no one tries to "inadvertently" submit another shoe. An esteemed committee of runners, local shoe experts and dignitaries will pick five finalists and the Ugly Shoe winner will be announced at the end of the awards. Ralph Baker Shoes will provide a coupon for a new pair of shoes of the winner's choice. The other four finalists will all get a $25 gift certificate.
Finish Line Video - All runners and walkers will have an individual finish line video available online after the race.
