We have over 800 runners registered for the event, with an expectation that even more will register during packet-pickup. Thank you to everyone for supporting this great event!
 
FOOD DRIVE:
Support the Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. We will be conducting a food drive at packet pickup on Friday, and at the run on Saturday morning. Bring food on Friday to packet-pickup, or race morning where the Tri-Area Ministry truck will be set up for collection. See here for a list of food needed to feed local families and to keep the shelves stocked. 

PACKET PICKUP: 
RUNNERS: You may pick up a packet for someone else. IDs are not required.
Walk-up registrations will be accepted at packet pickup and on the day of the race. Cash or Check Only.
