Special Announcement - Please Read!

At 200 Entries, this event will sell out!  We will then offer a "No Frills" option.  So what is the "No Frills" option, it is the race package without a Shirt and without a Finishers Medal.   So what DO you get?  You get a certified race course that is professionally timed!  You get the chance of coming home with a great Age Group Award!  You get a race supported by awesome volunteers!   You also get amazing homemade goodies or fruit after the race!  As well as the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to support a non-profit running club, where every dollar goes back into the running community!  So come join us, we would love to have you!  

What's New?

We still have the same fast 4 mile course as last year and a fast 1 mile certified course.  Race shirts this year will be dri release shirts for the first 200 participants signed up. Finisher medals will be given to the first 200 racers who sign up.  If you or somebody you know would like to volunteer, let the race director know. The races are chip-timed by the experienced crew of Timer Guys!

Kids pricing is $10.00 less during signup.
