Description

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 300 participants signed up. Finisher medals will be given to the first 300 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.
