Traffic control will be at crosswalks for runners, but please remain alert and aware of traffic. Walkers will be required to use sidewalks and follow regular pedestrian rules at intersections. No roller blades, bicycles, and no refunds. The course is USATF Certified. Check In on Race Day will be held under the tent on the corner of Main & King Street.
There are 2 options for the Kids Runs (age 11 and under). The Kids Dash is a 1/2 mile and costs no money, whereas the Kids 1 Miler has a $10 fee because it includes a t-shirt. We ask that all children participating in the Kids Runs bring a donation of 3 non-perishable food items OR a new outdoor toy to be given to a child in poverty (jump rope, baseball mitt, soccer ball, basketball, etc.)
Register by May 1 to receive the Early Bird Discount.
Registration by May 16 is required to guarantee you receive a race shirt.
