All times are self-reported. Choose your favorite course or a new area to explore, and, if you want, track your distance and route using your favorite device or application, such as CharityMiles, MapMyWalk, Strava, etc. (not required to participate). 

Free to participate! Donations gratefully accepted but not required. 

Open course - run/ride where you like in the Marys River watershed (or in spirit of the Marys River elsewhere in the world).

If you want, share your results, route, pictures, and thoughts about the race on our Facebook event page!
