Swag: A commemorative event shirt will be given to all pre-registered runners and to late registrants while supplies last. Finisher’s medals will be given to those that earn them.

Post race food will be provided by Gabriel II’s Pizzeria.  Please be advised that food is for runners only- we may not be able to accommodate specific dietary needs.

Weather: This is a rain or shine event. In the event or rain, canal towpath may be muddy. 

The Course: The course is out-and back along the historic Delaware Canal State Park towpath trail from Washington Crossing Historic Park, Pennsylvania, running north to a turnaround point near Chez Odette's, south of New Hope , and returning to Washington Crossing Historic Park.  A course map and detailed course information may be found on www.runbucks.com.

In order to reduce crowding on the Delaware Canal State Park towpath, we plan to employ a wave start. Small groups based on predicted finish time will be released over several minutes. Please be honest with your predicted finish time as incorrectly submitted times will make travel on along the canal towpath more difficult.

Timing and Results: The race will be timed using ChronoTrack “B” tags. B-tags will be adhered to the back of your race bib. Results will be posted on www.runbucks.com within 24 hours of the race.

Awards: Overall awards will be given to top three men and women and top three in age groups by gender.  Age groups are subject to change dependent on pre-registration.

We will conduct a ceremony after a cool down period for those finishers.  We will post age group results approximately 15 minutes after categories close out.  We will not be mailing awards.
