What is the difference between the Individual and Couple's Divsions?

The Individual Division is just as it sounds. You sign up, you race, you get your results.

In the Couple's Division, you and a partner race. Your combined times are compared to others in the Couple's division. The faster the both of you run, the faster your combined time! We also combine each participants age into a combined age group.

Do I get a medal?

Top three overall finishers from Individual Division and Couples Division get a valentines themed memorabilia. All participants receive valentines candy gram "metals". 

Where can I park?

Parking is available in the ramp next to Bessey Hall. You may also park in the lot in front of Erikson Hall. See for parking.

What time does the race start?

The race starts at 9:00am. Please arrive a little earlier for parking and warming up. 

Is there packet pick-up?
