Just sign up in advance.
There is no qualifying standard.
There are no seeding times.
There is no age limit even!
We’re just trying to have some fun in the middle of all this.

Run 7.5 laps on a track.
Or run a mile or 1.864114 miles on the road or trail, use some form of GPS if you must.
Report your time. You will get a link in the registration process.
We will compile and publish results.
You can then download a finishers certificate which will include your name and results info.
