Add’l

 

You’ve done the 5K (3.107 mls.); maybe the 10K (6.214 mls.)  also; perhaps, even the 15K (9.321 mls.) …but the full Marathon may be an impossible dream away…The 20K (12.428 mls.) or the Half (13.107 mls.) may be a bit too far also...Plus, you’ve yearned to do a double-digit mile race.  So you’re saying this ain’t ever gonna happen. Well, my friend, become a believer. Have faith! We’ll help you make all this happen. You can start a trend  -- be a trailblazer…You can finally step into the two-digit mile zone in an official  race – barely, but who’s counting?  After all, 10 is as much a two-digit number  as is 13 or 26 or 99! And we’ll tie it all into the Marathon family. This race provides a chance to finally step into the two-digit mile zone (10.486 mils) in an official  race and you can also associate it with the Marathon mania (2/5 of a marathon) – all in one race.
