Onsite registration and check in for those that pre-registered (strongly advised) begins at 8:00 AM with race start at 9:00 AM at the St Clair Plaza Gazebo on 201 N Riverside Ave in beautiful downtown St Clair. The race begins by traveling North on Riverside past Palmer Park in full view of the majestic St Clair River. The river at this location is about 1/2 mile wide and carries in excess of 1 million gallons of water every second! After running up a mild hill, the race winds thru a nearby subdivision and eventually returns the runners to the finish line precisely where the race began. The final stretch is a mild downhill run just before you reach the end. All proceeds from the race go 100% for charitable purposes.
