Trophies will be awarded along with gift certificates to The Running Shop.  

Please bring a blanket and some snacks (or a full blown picnic dinner) to hang out after the race. Although we had a little trouble with the food trucks, we will be serving snacks after the event.   We will have a kids dash on the track after the events for all kids 10 years and under.
