The Palace team competition has always been about outright speed. The competition was originally set up with a 7 person MAX team roster where the 5 fastest runners times are added together and the lowest time for the 2 team divisions wins. (Men & Women divisions). Awards will be presented to the top two teams in each division. Team captains must email a team roster to Tim Unger and Peg Griffin by noon on Friday, April 14. This is your last opportunity to change a team roster.
The 48th Annual Palace Saloon 5K is sponsored by Gulf Winds Track Club, a completely non-profit, volunteer-led organization. All proceeds from the races support dozens of charitable organizations in our community.
