Aid Stations
There will be two aid stations with water and Gatorade that you will pass twice, at approximately mile 1 and mile 2.25.

Our race will feature some local elite runners competing for prize money. We ask that walkers stay to the right of the course so that runners can easily pass. At start time, those who plan to run the course will start first, followed by those walking the course. The stroller division will start last.

Participants over 14 are eligible for age-group prizes, which will be awarded to the top three males and females in each age group: 
14-18; 19-29; 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+. The top male and female stroller runners also receive an award.

Kids and Families

Kids over the age of 14 may run on their own. Children under the age of 14 MUST be accompanied by a parent at all times on the course. Strollers are welcome; stroller riders need not register (parent must register; child in stroller doesn't need to).
