Low-budget awards given to the following divisions:
Park in the lot at Riverside and pick up your bib. The race will be manually timed (no chips), so make sure that you stay in order as you cross the finish line where volunteers will collect your pull-tag.
The course is an out and back on the paved trail through the park. There will be two water stops.
We encourage all runners and volunteers to respect personal space at the race venue, and adhere to CDC and State guidelines for outdoor gatherings.
We normally bring food to share, but we're not planning to do that this year. If you need something to eat right after the race, please bring your own nutrition. We will have bottled water at the finish line.
