The 1.2 mile run leaves the stadium, down the dirt road to the river trail, goes left (upriver) along the dirt trail, turns around by Wild Horse Creek bridge and returns on the concrete trail to the dirt road, onto and around the stadium track to finish at the regular finish line in front of the stands. 

School Competition

The school that has the most participants picking up a bib to run on race day gets to take home the Traveling Trophy!  

  • Online registration is encouraged - just show up and pick up and pin on your bib!
  • Same day registration until 10:15 am - must be signed in and bib picked up.
  • But you must pick up bib and run on race day for your school to get credit for you running. Official school participation count is done after bibs are picked up.

A couple elementary schools have made this a pretty good competition bringing over 100 kids to the race to take home the trophy. So make sure you give your school credit when you sign up!  We encourage you to sign up on line to skip long line on race day to register - just go to pre-registered table to pick up bib and pins.

Parents and Teachers

We encourage parents to stay in the stadium for a photo finish or watch the race unfold from the trail overlook just outside the stadium.  We often have teachers run with students from their school and we have volunteers on the course.

 Parents often ask if they can escort their child, especially the little ones.  Parents may escort their child but need to register and sign the liability waiver. When you register online, select "Teacher/Parent Escort" instead of a school.  Parents and teachers may also sign up race morning.  

We want to keep everyone safe, so we ask any adults escorting on the course allow the mad dash of kids to go ahead of them until the field of runners spreads out a bit.  We don't want anyone tripping and a bigger person landing on a smaller person.
